Hydrothermal Synthesis

From Sciwiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A hydrothermal synthesis is a reaction performed in water at an elevated temperature. A stainless steel/teflon autoclave may be used to achieve temperatures higher than one can achieve at ambient pressure, up to 150-250 degrees C. Don't fill an autoclave all the way.

Safety

Do not put in any reactants that will irreversibly decompose to gas without extreme caution. Closed systems can be dangerous.
