  1. Make stock concentrations (one set for both groups)
  2. Take UV-Vis and Fluorescence spectra for each stock
  3. Make a calibration curve for both fluorescence and UV-Vis


Preparation of stock solutions

0.0120g of R6G in 10mL needed to make the initial stock solution of 2500uM, this was used to prepare a secondary stock of 500uM, used to make the dilutions for 0.1, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.2 and 1.5. The initial stock of 2500uM was used to make a 2uM. But the 1.5 and 2 uM were not used for the calibration curve because the fluorescence was too high that it did not provide accurate data.
