Snapdragon Develops New Multi-Wavelength Photoreactor
Snapdragon Chemistry has created a simple, efficient (higher yield and faster reaction time) small footprint photoreactor for use in flow chemistry. The development of our own photoreactor was borne out of the Snapdragon Chemistry team’s frustration with not being able to find an appropriate photoreactor for our own continuous flow projects.
Traditional photoreactors are often used in batch processing and are typically unable to achieve the same throughput as continuous flow reactors. Unlike fan-cooled photoreactors, the Snapdragon Chemistry photoreactor achieves specific temperature control through cooling ports that can be connected to chillers. Temperature specificity is also enhanced through the use of LEDs, which minimize the amount of thermal fatigue on the components of the light bulb and on the other components of the photoreactor. This leads to a longer lifetime for the components and overall product.
Reactor flow system
Adjustable light intensity, wavelength, light absorption depth, and temperature control
Reactor inlet ports, outlet ports, and a length of reactor tubing coupled fluidically
365 nm, 385nm, 405nm, and 457nm wavelengths
The photoreactor is UL listed.
