Part A:Preparing hydrogels for pH analysis

  • Add 1.5ml of water in to a epitest tube with 2mg hydrogel.
  • Centrifuge sample containing hydrogels and crystal violet indicator 3 times (5 minutes, 13200 rpm)

-Measure the absorbance of each supernatant to find the amount of CV that the hydrogels have absorbed

2) Prepare 2 more hydrogel solutions with the following indicators (these will be used to measure dye leakage as well as to monitor pH changes)

a) methyl red (55μL) in 1.5 mL ethanol w/ 2mg hydrogels b) bromophenol blue (30μL) in 1.5 mL water w/ 2mg hydrogels
