Nitrosation System (Patented)

S-nitrosation system for the S-nitrosation of polymers and hydrogels. Cylinders of NO, and synthetic air are used for delivering NO/O2 pulses to the samples inside a reaction chamber (shown inserted in the sampling compartment of a UV-Vis spectrophotometer). A solenoid valve, via an electronic timer, controls the number and duration of the pulses. The excess gases are diverted to a discard flask
