Objectives

  1. Finish preparation of all microsphere samples.
  2. Finish decanting microsphere samples prepared 2013/03/22.
  3. Dry microsphere samples decanted and rinsed with hexanes(2013/03/27) in preparation for DSC and X-ray.
  4. Consolidate microsphere samples with dye additive and place in new vials in preparation for diffusion testing.


Microsphere Preparation

  • The general protocol for microsphere preparation described on 2013/02/20 and 2013/02/22.
  • A very small amount of PVA/clay was added to each vial and the vial was filled with safflower oil prior to the rapid freezing in order to achieve a true emulsion of microspheres in the organic safflower oil. This may prevent the formation of hydrogels.
  • The four microsphere samples that were dissolved on 2013/03/22 were prepared.
  • It was realized that a microsphere sample without clay additive had not been prepared. Two microsphere samples with only PVA were also prepared.
