The easy-Photochem – Features


Configuration Overview

The easy-Photochem E-Series is a more basic E-Series system. It comes with a photochemical reactor with a light and power source. The light source can be an LED, with wavelengths varying from 365 nm to 500 nm or as a high intensity, medium pressure mercury lamp with variable power input of 75-150 Watts. The easy-Photochem is perfect for any and all photochemical, including the use of solid photocatalysts due to the V-3 pump in every E-Series. The easy-Photochem can be expanded with other reactors, to couple the photochemical step with others, such as pre-heating with a heated reactor, quenching with a cooled reactor or a second synthetic step in sequence.

The easy-Photochem package includes:

  • A UV-150 photochemical reactor kit


The easy-Photochem E-Series comes with a UV-150 photochemical reactor, light source and power. As with all E-Series, the system is compatible with all reactors like the R-Series, which are all interchangeable in seconds. Other reactors can be found on the reactors page and include:

  • Heated or cooled
  • Tube or column
  • Regular or pre-mixing
  • Polymer, stainless steel or Cu / Ag / Zn tube reactors for catalysed reactions.
  • Gas / liquid reactor
  • UV-150 Photochemical reactor
  • Glass microchip reactors
  • 2 reaction steps, temperature controlled separately

V3 pump on E-series flow chemistry systems

The V-3 Pump

Simple, accurate and reliable pumping of all reagents, including

  • Volatile solvents
  • Gases
  • Great for organometallic/highly reactive reagents (e.g. BuLi, DIBAL)
  • Strong acids including fuming Nitric acid
  • Suspensions and light slurries
  • Choose from 2 or 3 pump system, or start with 2 and add a third later.

E-series manual interface


The easy-Photochem E-Series comes with a touchscreen interface, mounted at an ergonomically optimal height with full tilt adjustment. The easy-Photochem has a basic user interface, allowing to easily set the key flow rates and temperature parameters. It also includes useful tools, such as:

  • Vapour pressure calculator
  • Arrhenius “reaction acceleration” prediction tool
  • Axial dispersion look up tool

cold cryo reactor from Vapourtec


The E-Series base models can be expanded with a range of different accessories. These include:

  • An additional pump
  • Collection valve
  • Organometallic kit (for air/moisture sensitive reagents)
  • Cryogenic reaction kit

Each optional kit is user installable.
