OBJECTIVES

  • Frepare PVOH film with 5-hydroxymethylfurfural
  • Run FTIR analysis on all films prepared throughout the semester
  • Run ion diffusion experiment on PVOH film and analyze data using Ion Selective Electrode

Furfural Film Preparation

  • In 10mL beaker, weigh out ~ 1.0 grams PVOH (MW 22K)

(PVOH 22K Actual Mass = 1.0029g)

  • Then, using a graduated cylinder add ~ 5 mL H2O to the beaker
  • After adding and combining PVOH (MW 22K) in a small beaker with H2O, add a stir bar and prepare to stir solution
  • On hot plate, stir and heat beaker solutions at 70-80°C for ~ 12 min or until PVOH dissolves
  • Once PVOH solids thoroughly dissolve in solution, take the solution and place it in the fume hood
  • Allow the solution to cool then add ~ 0.3g of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural to the solution

(Furfural Actual Mass = 0.3192g)

  • Then pour the solution into a Teflon dish to sit, cool, and dry in the fume hood for ~ 2 days

Films Examined using FTIR

Ion Diffusion & Ion Selective Electrode Film Procedures

  1. Cut a small piece of the PVOH 22K film

ISE Film Analysis: Varied Ion Solution

A crosslinked PVOH 22K film containing 1mL glutaldehyde that had been exchanged for 10 min in the CuSO4 solution was used for an Ion Selective Electrode Analysis.

Notes

  • Experimental readings regarding the Ion Selective Electrode Analysis were taken every 30 minutes; however, for the first reading and recording only a 10 min interval surpassed before a reading was taken.
  • The final two readings germane to the Ion Selective Electrode Analysis for the PVOH 22K film containing 1mL glutaldehyde that was exchanged for 10 min with CuSO4 were taken by Dr. Fox.
  • A small leak was detected in the film used after several hours had passed (9:00P).
