Microscale: removal of harmful vapors

As in mini-scale processes, it is sometimes necessary to remove harmful or hazardous vapors generated in a reaction in a controlled manner.

The following figure shows the assemblies that are usually used for this purpose.

Note the absolute parallelism of these setups with those described in basic laboratory operations.

The gas generated can be bubbled over a container with water or evacuated by applying a vacuum.
