High power LEDs

High Power LED light source for the UV-150 photochemical reactor

Over recent years many research groups have demonstrated the unique ability of LED light sources to excite a photocatalyst and effect valuable and selective chemical transformations under mild conditions. Researcher Groups led by Prof. Dave MacMillan, Prof. Cory Stephenson and Prof. Steven Ley have, in many cases, demonstrated the potential to scale up these photocatalysed reactions by employing continuous flow reactors.

In many of the published continuous flow photochemical reactions throughput has been limited by available photons. Vapourtec have now developed an LED light source as a drop-in replacement for the UV-150 that has more than double the photon output compared with the standard lamp.
