Introducing Lucent360™

The World’s Most Advanced Photoreactor

Choose from 4 different photoreactor models ranging from our basic model to the Lucent360: the world's most advanced photoreactor

What gives us the confidence to make such a bold claim?

The LUCENT360™ patent-pending design provides the most flexibility for parallel, large batch and flow photochemistry.

Reaction vials (0.3, 2, 4, 8 or 20 ml) are immerged in a thermostatic bath controlled via an external heater/ chiller unit, enabling temperature controlled experiment conditions.

Light irradiation is provided by custom, interchangeable and high-powered LED light modules that surround the reaction chamber.  Our multi-light screener enables multiple wavelengths and multiple light intensities, simultaneously.

EvoluChem™ Brand Photoreactors

(US Patent #10,906,022)
photoreactor

PhotoRedOx Box™

Our original photoreactor’s patented design is compatible with most vial formats (0.3 ml, 2 ml, 4 ml and 20 ml vials) as well as most stirring plates. A built-in fan keeps the reaction conditions at room temperature.  Several light source options are available.

photoredox duo photoreactor

PhotoRedOx Box Duo™

The PhotoRedOx Duo™ uses the same patented concept as our original photoreactor but doubles the vial capacity and includes an additional reaction chamber. The photoreactor Duo can hold up to 16 vials (2, 4 or 8 ml) and can accommodate a second light source for increased reaction rates of difficult reaction conditions.

Temperature controlled photoreactor

PhotoRedOx Box TC™

Also based on our patented design, the TC (Temp Controlled) version, with a standard chiller/heater unit (not included), makes it possible to perform photo-catalytic reactions at controlled temperatures from 0°C to 80°C.

EvoluChem™ Brand LEDs

EvoluChem™ LEDs

EvoluChem™ LEDs are designed specifically for photo-catalytic chemistry applications. They fit all EvoluChem™ PhotoRedox boxes and are designed to irradiate samples with maximum efficiency.

The commercial-grade LED chips are selected for specific wavelengths and are offered at the following levels: 365 nm, 380 nm, 405 nm, 425 nm, 450 nm, 475 nm, 525 nm, 650 nm, 740 nm, and 6200K white.

RED and NIR LEDs

Our latest addition to the family of EvoluChem™ LEDs is our 650PF (pictured above) which enables red light photochemical reactions.  We also offer 740nm NIR.

We examine several advances in Red Light Photochemistry here.

DX Format LEDs

While most of our LEDs are standard (Par) format, our DX series LEDs are fitted with a more powerful 30W power supply but still fit all EvoluChem™ Photoreactors.

Personal Protective Equipment

High-powered LED light sources, particularly in the UV spectrum, are known to be damaging to your eyes.  We offer special glasses and safety screens to protect your eyesight during reactions.

We also offer hoods for your vial holders to eliminate light from outside the reaction chamber.

Accessories

Flow Photoreactor

PhotoRedOx Flow Reactor™

Our specially designed flow reactor (meant to be used with our PhotoRedOx Box™) enables scaling of photochemistry reactions by significantly increasing surface area.  This flow reactor uses PFA tubing and has volume of 2 ml.

Photoreactor Vial Holders

These holders are designed for our PhotoRedOx Box™ HCK1006-01-016, our PhotoRedOx Duo™ HCK1006-01-023, and our PhotoRedOx TC™ HCK1006-01-025. They are compatible with most vial formats (0.3 ml, 2 ml, 4 ml and 20 ml vials). (Patent Pending)

Photocatalytic Deconstruction of Polystyrene

What if we could shine a blue LED on our 8 billion tons of plastic waste and get back a valuable chemical feedstock? Click to read about the Reisner group’s work looking at tackling this problem.

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?
