CHEM-POL Chemical Polarimeter

CHEM-POL Chemical Polarimeter

6.080,58  + PDV

The Chemical Polarimeter is a device used for measuring the rotation of plane-polarized light caused by optically active substances such as organic, inorganic, or biological compounds.

SKU: 18-01-098 Kategorije: , ,


The Polarimeter can be used to measure chiral properties of optically active samples without chemically modifying or destroying the sample. This is a vertical polarimeter that uses a 589 nm LED, a fixed polarizer, and a manually rotated polarizer to detect changes in rotation of plane-polarized light in the presence of an optically active compound. Used with Vernier technology, students no longer have to determine the optical maximum with their eye but have a graph that shows a clear change in the light’s polarization.

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including chromium, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
