A Treasure Trove for the Synthetic Chemist
News May 11, 2007
A range of tools for the synthetic chemist can be found on the new Asynt website. Asynt Ltd is a specialist company supplying a range of solutions for key processes like synthesis, purification and evaporation as well as an extensive library of molecular building blocks and intermediates from its US partner company Pharmacore.
Asynt’s popular DrySyn heating blocks offer key safety benefits over silicon oil baths and mantles for heating vials and flasks from 1ml to 5000ml. The DrySyn Cool achieves controlled cooling down to -30ºC without resorting to jacketed reaction vessels.
The website also introduces Asynt’s range of selected products from other universally respected brands in the field of laboratory synthesis all supported by Asynt’s own in-house team of applications specialists.
Stereochemistry is a science of reflection. Two chemical molecules with the same composition and structure, but with one as the mirror image of the other, can produce wildly varying effects. But University of Utah chemist Matt Sigman has been developing a way to get a better grasp on this tricky field of chemistry.READ MORE
