Objective

  1. Continue testing 30% and 40% Bentonite beads
  2. Synthesize 60% beads
  3. Prepare stock solutions of heavy metals (Zn, Cu, and Pb)

Procedure

  1. Testing the 30% and 40% Bentonite beads
    • The beads were tested using the same procedure as before
  2. Synthesis of 60% Bentonite beads
    • Synthesis of 60% Bentonite beads was performed using this method, along with 18.74 mL of concentrated HCl, 2.26 mL of DI Water, and 50 mL of 3% Bentonite solution.
  3. Preparation of heavy metal stock solutions
    • 10 mL of 100 ppm Zn solution was prepared using Zinc Acetate
    • 10 mL of 100 ppm Cu solution was prepared using Copper Chloride
    • 10 mL of 100 ppm Pb solution was prepared using Lead Acetate
