OBJECTIVES

  • Begin fluorescence detection through pressure testing analysis of microsphere samples (new modifications & better results)
  • Continue to run DSC sample analysis on microsphere samples previously prepared on 3/29/13
  • Continue to remove excess oil from microsphere samples prepared on 03/29/13
  • Wash microspheres prepared on 03/29/13 with hexanes
  • Dry microsphere samples rinsed with hexanes in preparation for DSC and X-ray
  • Make films containing both clay and PVOH variations to run X-ray analysis

Straight Pipette: Microsphere Pressure Samples Tested

RECALL HYDROGEL PRESSURE TESTING PROTOCOL ON 2/20/13 & FLUORESCENCE ANALYSIS PROCEDURES ON 2/13/13

Sample Order PVOH vs. Clay Ratio PVOH Type Clay Selection Amount of Hydrogel Used (g)
1 50:50 146K 110% CEC Laponite w/ DMHXLBR 0.1883
2 90:10 146K NaMT 0.1742
3 90:10 146K 110% CEC Laponite w/ DMHXLBR 0.1404
4 90:10 146K 50% CEC NaMT w/ Bu3HdP+ 0.1721
5 50:50 146K 50% CEC NaMT w/ Bu3HdP+ 0.1884
6 50:50 146K NaMT 0.1349
  • Specific parameters used to analyze fluorescence of hydrogel samples containing Rhodamine 6G dye included the following:
    # Excitation: 480nm
    # Emission Range: 500-650nm
    # Excitation Slit Width: 10
    # Emission Slit Width: 10
    # Scan Speed: 1200

Notes

  • On 04/05/13, the DSC instrument lost contact or communication with the computer; therefore, microsphere samples originally prepared on 04/03/13 were incorrectly run and analyzed.
  • Therefore, all microsphere samples placed in the DSC on 04/03/13 were re-run over the weekend -- no results could be collected.
