setting up an air-sensitive reaction (video)

Web Resources and Apps

Submitted by Adam R. Johnson, Harvey Mudd College

This is a video I made to demonstrate the basics of air-sensitive reaction setup under nitrogen flush. It is the simplest, most basic method for setting up a reaction with air/water sensitive reagents.

The link goes to my channel on YouTube.

Learning Goals: 

After watching this video, a student will be able to set up a reaction under nitrogen. Or, if there is a global pandemic and the students are at home, they will at least see how it is done.

Implementation Notes: 

I made this and am sharing it with my students because they did not get an opportunity to set up an air sensitive reaction this year.

Time Required: 
5 minutes to watch video
