Objective

Add sodium montmorillonite with the PVA

Description

same as previous time

Data

  • Everything got clogged today.
  • Briefly tried method used in previous year of dropping PVA with clay directly into an ethyl acetate bath and then adding gluteraldehyde to crosslink.
  • Used 0.1M sodium bicarbonate to quench reaction.
  • This did not work - would form one large particle instead of many small beads
