Asynt have launched the first affordable 500ml parallel reactor on
the market with its latest addition to the DrySyn range, providing
a safe and flexible alternative to oil bath and mantles.

The DrySyn MULTI-S offers a safe method for the equal heating and stirring of a reaction and is highly competitive with oil bath technology, in terms of temperature transfer.

Temperatures in excess of 200°C are easily achieved and the safety issues experienced with silicon oil baths are significantly reduced. It additionally boasts many advantages over the commonly used heating mantle option.

Chemical synthesis is often conducted using stirrer hotplates, which are very convenient when the reaction is run at room temperature.

However, using oil baths to heat reactions on stirrer hotplates can be a potential fire hazard as well as being messy leaving residues, which can contaminate other glassware when being washed up.

The DrySyn MULTI range's main advantage is the freedom it offers to heat different sizes of flask and tube at the same time and the convenience to place a thermocouple for controlled heating.

The DrySyn MULTI-S reaction block is a larger version of the DrySyn MULTI-M and boasts increased maximum capacity over previous DrySyn MULTI units, accommodating 500ml round bottomed flasks whilst still having the flexibility to work with smaller volume flasks/vials as required.

The DrySyn MULTI-S is similar to existing DrySyn products in that it works as a modular, single or multiple reaction system.

Its construction from anodised aluminium allows efficient heat and magnetic transfer. The DrySyn MULTI-S can be used to support up to three 10mL-500mL flasks or carry out multiple reactions using vials or tubes, whilst still receiving equal stirring and heating.

It can also be placed on most hotplate stirrer and flasks and can be supported separately to the hotplate, using the specially designed clamp, which can allow rapid removal of the heat source from the reactions if required.

Additional information on the DrySyn MULTI-S and Asynt range can be found on the company​ website.
