Solvent Resistant Oxygen Sensors

The OXSOLV sensors of PyroScience are among the only optical oxygen sensors 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 or in gloveboxes 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
