Glove Box

The inert atmosphere glove box, or sometimes "dry box",  is used for the synthesis, storage and manipulation of air or moisture sensitive materials. The workspace is typically filled with nitrogen, argon or other inert gas providing a dry, air free environment. Arm-length gloves and viewing window provide a means of working with materials inside the chamber. An antechamber, which can be evacuated or flooded with inert gas allows introducing materials or equipment from the room into the inert atmosphere. Glove boxes have a central and indispensable role in the study of air-sensitive compounds.
