The OXSOLV sensors of PyroScience are among the only optical oxygen sensor solutions, which work in most polar and unpolar organic solvents. Application with the handheld device FireSting-GO2 for example enables oxygen measurement under the fume hood to determine the oxygen content of your organic solvent.

Common applications: 

  • Monitoring of oxygen during your reaction in pure organic solvents and their mixtures
  • Control of the oxygen content of oxygen sensitive reactions (e.g. polymerisation)
  • Determination of oxygen solubility in organic solvents
  • Monitoring of deoxygenation processes in organic solvents
