Tasks for September 12 2014
To start preparing new films using exfoliated clay. <br.> Perform XRD measurement (Postponed until Sept. 17). <br.> Continue analysis of DSC and UVVis.<br.> To make new stock solutions of malachite green dye
Preparation of 10% PVA-exfoliated clay
Refer to Dr. Harting's Notebook for full details on the procedure
Preparation of new malachite green solutions
Second measurement of MG dye absorbed into PVA polymer films
Redid measurements due to anomalies and discrepancies across group results.
10 mL of the corresponding MG solutions were added to each vial.
Measuring MG coated onto glass vials
Added 10 mL of 80 and 200 ppm into two different empty and clean vials. <br.> UV-Vis is to be done on these vials during the next class to determine the amount of MG that becomes coated on the glass
