Distillation of cannabinoids in a rotovap?

Anyone try it?

You’d be wasting your time. Wrong tool for the job.

You’d struggle to get vacuum deep enough, and you’d never get your heating bath hot enough.

Even if you could overcome those problems, how would you separate your fractions?

Good points, I’m seeing cleaning as the biggest issue.

No deep enough vacuum is definitely the biggest issue

That makes sense. What vac are y’all reaching with your spd?

Under 1000 micron for volitiles, 300ish for cannabinoids. Measured from behind the cold trap

Haha. I guess never say never right … Do you have pictures of that thing?
