Objective

To measure Malachite green solutions made on 2018/08/31 with fluorescence spectroscopy. Also make two new solutions that are closer to range of UV-Vis data and run those samples.

Lab Protocol

  • end(nm): 700
  • excit: 555
  • ex. slit (nm): 5.0
  • Emslit (nm): 5.0
  • scan speed: 200 nm/min

Notes

  1. Measured UV-Vis, followed by fluorescence.
    1. Our concentrations were too dilute and no signal picked up by fluorescence.
    2. Made two other solutions of higher concentration but it was still not picked up (3 ppm and 6 ppm).
  2. 332 ppb solution was a little off in both UV-Vis and fluorescence.
  3. Solutions for fluorescence measurement were prepared by Dr. Hartings.
