3D‐Printing inside the Glove‐Box: A Versatile Tool for Inert‐Gas Chemistry Combined with Spectroscopy

3D‐printing with the well‐established “Fused Deposition Modeling” technology was used to print totally gas‐tight reaction vessels, combined with printed cuvettes, inside the inert‐gas atmosphere of a glove‐box. During pauses of the print, the reaction flasks out of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene were filled with various reactants. After basic test reactions to proof the oxygen tightness and investigations of the influence of printing within an inert‐gas atmosphere, scope and limitations of the method are presented by syntheses of new compounds with highly reactive reagents such as trimethylaluminium and reaction monitoring via UV/VIS‐, IR‐ and NMR‐spectroscopy. Especially the applicable temperature range, the choice of solvents, the reaction times and the analytical methods have been investigated in detail. A set of reaction flasks is presented, which allow routine inert‐gas syntheses and combined spectroscopy without modifications of the glove‐box, the 3D‐printer or the spectrometers. Overall, this demonstrates the potential of 3D‐printed reaction cuvettes to become a complementary standard method in inert‐gas chemistry.
