- Synthesize poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc) from PVOH.
- Please refer to the entry on 2012/11/14 for calculations.
- Prepare sodium bicarbonate standard solution for titration.
Sodium Bicarbonate Standard Solution
- 200 mL of 0.1 M sodium bicarbonate and 1 M potassium pthalate were prepared.
- Please refer to Moira Esson's entry for the PVOH film preparation protocol and actual masses of compounds.
- Note that the sodium bicarbonate solution was standardized to determine its actual concentration.
