Lollipop laboratory glassware
Three pieces of laboratory glassware used by Andrew Benson, Caltech PhD 1942, chemistry, which show stages of innovation in the design of glassware to study photosynthesis. The lollipop design enabled a rapid cut-off of a photochemical reaction.
Benson is known for his work on the pathway in photosynthesis used to make sugars out of carbon dioxide, water and sunlight known as the Benson-Calvin cycle (also known as the Calvin cycle or the Calvin-Benson-Bassham cycle).
