New Sensors for Chemistry

Three exciting new chemistry products offer greater versatility for your college chemistry investigations.

NEW Vernier Flash Photolysis Spectrometer

Vernier Flash Photolysis Spectrometer

Demonstrate the fundamental principles of photochemical reactions with the Vernier Flash Photolysis Spectrometer, the first transient absorption spectrometer designed specifically for education. Free software and experiments are available for download.

  • Spectral coverage: 450–750 nm
  • Temporal resolution: 100 μs
  • Includes a 600 nm filter and an empty filter housing that can be used with standard-size, third-party filters

NEW Pressure Sensor 400

Vernier Pressure Sensor 400

Our new Pressure Sensor 400 accurately measures absolute pressures from 0 to 400 kPa over a wide temperature range. The robust, metal fittings allow for a tight, leak-proof seal between the sensor and your reaction apparatus.

The accessories kit that comes with the sensor includes:

  • double-barbed, brass connector to fit flexible tubing
  • nickel-plated-brass, push-to-connect connector to fit more rigid tubing
  • two-foot section of rigid nylon tubing
  • two-foot section of flexible PVC tubing
  • tightening wrenches and plumber’s tape to ensure a tight seal

NEW Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe

Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe

The two-cell, platinum sensing element and epoxy body of the Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe ensures greater chemical compatibility when measuring the conductivity of stronger acids and bases and non-aqueous solutions. It has a range of 0 to 2000 μS/ cm, and a switch to turn on and off temperature compensation, making it possible to investigate conductivity as a function of temperature. The Platinum-Cell Conductivity Probe is easy to use with its plug-and-play operation and has excellent accuracy. Two experiments for this probe, “Kinetic Analysis of the Hydrolysis of Ethyl Acetate” and “Investigating Fundamental Concepts in Solution Conductivity,” are available for free download.
