Objectives

  • Run X-ray diffraction on all prepared 130MW PVA/clay films.
  • Run Diffusion Testing on all microsphere samples with Rhodamine 6G added.
  • Prepare for pressure testing of microspheres.
  • Finish running DSC of all hydrogel(PVA 130) samples and a Rhodamine 6G sample.


X-ray

  • The general protocol for X-ray diffraction described on 2013/04/12 was followed.
  • Due to the analysis of films, invisible scotch tape was used to tape the films onto the pan. The scotch tape was placed on the edge of the films. A plain scotch tape X-ray sample will be taken and will be subtracted from all film samples.
    • All x-ray spectra will be uploaded once collected.
    • Only 50:50 PVA:clay samples were run on the x-ray.
    • The prepared 50:50 PVA130:110% LP film sample formed a powder after being allowed to completely dry.


Microspheres

Diffusion Testing:

  • The general protocol for diffusion testing described on [[User:Moira_M._Esson/Notebook/CHEM-581/2013/
