Abigail and I are trying a new MOF synthesis. 51.8 mg DO2A 61.0 mg Zn(NO3)2 6H20 3 mL of diethylformamide
in a scint vial with a teflon cap
sonicate to create a suspension
Place in oven at 130C at 9:45am
Abigail and I checked the reaction at 12pm, the solution was brown. This is much different than the first time we performed the reaction, where there was a clear solution with a percipitate. We are going to let it run until 1 and then let it cool.
