Objective

Create new solutions of Malachite green dye of varying concentrations. Measure the absorbance of the solutions with UV-Vis.

Lab Protocol

  1. Create two new solutions of Malachite green dye from the appropriate standard solution.
  2. Measure the absorbance of Malachite green solution.

Procedure for cleaning cuvette

  1. UV-Vis is a non-damaging technique. Replace your sample in the proper container using a pipette.
  2. Rinse cuvette with water
  3. Rinse cuvette with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) solution
  4. Rinse cuvette with water
  5. Rinse cuvette with 10% HCl solution
  6. Rinse cuvette with water
