Objectives

  1. Make PVOH/clay films in order to run FTIR and X-ray.
  2. Run both modified and unmodified pressure testing on microspheres with dye added.
  3. Prepare DSC samples of all decanted and dried microspheres.


Film Preparation

  • PVA/clay films were prepared in order to run examine these films using FTIR and X-ray. These films will be compared to the hydrogel and microsphere samples in order to determine the difference between the prepared PVA/clay structures.
  • The films were prepared using the same PVA/clay ratio as that of the prepared microspheres and hydrogels.
  • The General Protocol for PVOH film preparation described on 2012/08/29 was used

  • After being poured into the Teflon dish, these films were placed in a freezer at -20°C. These films will undergo the same, 3 day freeze-thaw method that both the microspheres and hydrogels were subjected to.
  • After they were placed in the freezer, frost appear to cover the films and they appeared to shrink in comparison to the hydrogels which expanded upon freezing
