3 Equipment Questions
« on: November 17, 2009, 03:14:30 AM »
Retorts - how effective are they for distilling?  Obviously they're not as effective as a full setup, but functional?

Portable bunsen burner - any real advantage to these over a portable stovetop?

How do you determine which rubber stoppers from United Nuclear fit which flasks?


Thanks :)

Told by United Nuclear that they're currently working on a page to guide the stopper - flask purchases.  If you email them what glassware you're interested in stoppers for though, they're able to provide you with the information you need.

I meant butane/propane, why?  I was comparing vs a self contained bunsen burner.
