What is the function of the reagent bottle?

Reagent bottles, also called media bottles, are used to store chemicals in liquid or powder form. Reagent bottles are usually made of glass or plastic. The first reagent bottle was manufactured in Duran in 1972. Reagent bottles are primarily designed to store reagents. However, with the development of improved designs, several other chemicals can be stored in reagent bottles.

The small opening of the reagent bottle with a narrow neck prevents the contents from spilling out. Reagent bottles with narrow necks can prevent evaporation of liquid reagents. Narrow neck reagent bottles are best for storing liquid reagents. At the same time, wide-neck reagent bottles are very convenient for storing solids. It is very simple to remove solid reagents from wide-mouth reagent bottles.

A narrow neck reagent bottle is nice, but there are a lot of things to consider when using it. Reagent bottles with narrow necks cannot be heated. Liquids in narrow-necked reagent bottles are susceptible to contamination and spoilage. Be careful when removing liquids from narrow-necked reagent bottles. When pouring liquid, face the reagent bottle label with the palm of your hand. Stickers rust easily.

Only rubber stoppers may be used to store lye in reagent bottles. Also, the caps of the reagent bottles should be placed upside down on the table to avoid contamination.

Transparent and brown reagent bottles with light-shielding reagents such as nitrate and silver nitrate are used to store general reagents.
