An Accessible Mercury-Free Vacuum Schlenk Line for Air-Free Techniques
Journal of Chemical Education
A vacuum Schlenk line is essential for teaching some air-free laboratory techniques. Conventional variations of this apparatus in the inorganic laboratory employ mercury bubblers, which makes them unsuitable for institutions seeking to eliminate mercury. This communication describes an effective modification of a vacuum line system that can be set up with minimal time and effort.
