Main Question or Discussion Point

Hopefully I can convince the boss to buy one of those puppies. They sound so friggin sweet

-mg to 100g scale hydrogenations
-premade cartridges w/ desired catalysts
-0-100 C temperature
-1-100 bar pressures can be used
-can monitor reaction progress of hydrogenation


I always hate disposing of things like raney nickel or other catalysts that turn pyrophoric after being exposed to hydrogen. This things sounds amazing.

Yeah, all the kids these days want to wake up on Christmas morning to find a hydrogenation reactor under the tree.

Very cool! Any idea of the replacement cartridge selection and cost?

So far the selection of catalyst catridges that I know of are
-5% Rh/C
-10% Pd/C
-5% Rhenium/C
-Raney Ni
-Pearlman's
-Lindlar's
-PtO2


Pretty good selection. The apparatus, from what I hear, costs anywhere from $50K-$60k. I'm not sure how much catridges cost. Not cheap, but it sounds like it would be worth it. Apparently it won an award for being one of the top 100 R&D inventions in the world of 2005.

Looks like you could build you own with a used HPLC pump and a small hydrogen generator.
