'''Prepared PVOH films in water:'''
+
-
* In 10mL beaker, weigh out ~ 0.5 grams PVOH (MW 130,000)
+
-
'''(Actual Mass = 0.4934g)'''
+
-
* Then, using a graduated cylinder add ~ 3 mL H<sub>2</sub>O to the beaker
+
-
* In another 10mL beaker, weigh out ~ 1.0 gram PVOH (MW 130,000)
+
-
'''(Actual Mass = 0.9965g)'''
+
-
* Then, using a graduated cylinder add ~ 5 mL H<sub>2</sub>O to the beaker
+
-
'''Standard PVOH Film Protocol:'''
+
==Preparations For Cu<sup>2+</sup> Film Exchanged Solutions & Vacuum Filtration Procedures==
-
* After adding and combining PVOH (MW 130,000) in small beakers with H<sub>2</sub>O, add stir bars and prepare to stir solution.
+
==UV - Vis Procedures==
-
* On hot plate, stir and heat both beaker solutions at 70-80°C for ~ 12 min or until PVOH dissolves.
+
==UV-Vis of Porphyrin Solutions==
-
* Once PVOH solids thoroughly dissolve in solution, pour each solution in a Teflon dish to sit, cool, and dry in a fume hood for ~ 1 day.
+
==Porphyrin Film Preparations==
-
'''Notes:'''
 
-
* An additional 2-3 mL H<sub>2</sub>O was added to each solution to aid the dissolving of the PVOH
 
-
* Heat was reduced when solutions began to boil too rapidly
 
-
* While transferring solutions to Teflon dishes, loss of sample within the small beakers (sample loss = incomplete sample transfer)
