ORGANIC LABORATORY TECHNIQUES 8 8.1 • ROTARY EVAPORATION : THE "ROTOVAP" The rotary evaporator or "rotovap" is an expensive piece of apparatus that needs to be used with care.
1 OPERATING THE ROTARY EVAPORATOR (ROTOVAP ) The rotary evaporator is an instrument that is used in the lab for the removal of volatile solvents from a nonvolatile or less volatile product.
What is a Rotary Evaporator? • It accelerates the evaporation of solvent. In other words it's a mini-distillery • Everyone calls it a "Rotovap" • How does it work? • spins and heats your flask • places your flask under vacuum • evaporates solvent from your flask and condenses and ...
