Personal Protective Equipment

Blue Light Protection

Safety First: We offer photochemistry eye protection including protective screens, glasses and blue light protection equipment.

High-powered LED light sources, particularly in the UV spectrum, are known to be damaging to your eyes.  Our special glasses and safety screens are there to protect your eyesight during reactions. We also offer hoods for your vial holders to eliminate light from outside the reaction chamber.

Protective Screen

(HCK1015-01-002)

This plexiglass screen is designed to fit inside standard chemistry hoods and limit direct exposure to photochemical light.  The specific color of the screen is 100% effective at blocking all ultraviolet wavelengths. It cuts off light at or below 540 nm wavelength and works great for UV curing operations.

Photoreactor Light Proofing Upgrade

Light Proofing Upgrade

(HCK1006-01-026)

The PhotoRedOx Box has been designed to limit the exposure to light during experiment. However when using light spectrum below 500 nm, repetitive exposure to light should be avoided. In addition to personal protective equipment, we offer upgrade kit to dramatically reduce the light leaking from the device.

*Average relative irradiance is measured in the photoredox box.

Photocatalysis in Seawater

Seawater: It’s abundant, messy, contains salts, microorganisms, biomass, organic and inorganic pollutants (and microplastics) and might just be a great solvent for generating hydrogen peroxide with visible light photocatalysis

Comparing Commercial Photoreactors

How should we compare commercial photoreactors? Or better yet, how do we discuss the important details of a photochemical reaction?
