Hello, I have a cheap hot mantle with a stirrer, the temperature is regulated with an incorporated thermometer, so you measure the temp of where the thermometer is, not the mantle temperature. I have seen people putting the thermometer out of the flask, trap it between the hot mantle and flask...
It would be great if I can do this because I need the thermometer inlet for adding argon and other more reasons.
But I don't know how well this could measure the temperature of the solution. It can not go hotter than estimated.
So maybe is not a good idea.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR *delete me*
