There is a relationship between various parameters of the rotary evaporator and the distillation rate that can be reached. The temperatures of heating bath and the chiller, the pressure inside the system, the size of the evaporating flask and its rotation speed. This versatility allows one to achieve efficient evaporation while re-specting the requirements of specific applications. But under which conditions do we get the highest distillation rate? And how reliable is this rate when working under real conditions? Here we provide realistic values for our laboratory Rotavapor.
