Today's Tasks

  • Isolate AB4 begun on Tuesday
  • Gather IR for all MOFs synthesized over the past semester.
  • Gather PXRD for silly putty and play-doh and compare the spectra to the expected spectra for the MOFs to be tested.

Isolation of AB4

  • Removed flask from heat and filtered off the zinc powder once cool enough to handle.
  • Acidified the solution using 6M HCl.
  • Heated solution until formation of a solid was observed.
  • Removed the solution from heat and let cool to room temperature. Once the solution was about RT, the solution was placed in an ice bath to promote recrystallization.
  • Crystalline (yellowish-orangish-brownish) product was filtered and allowed to dry using a vacuum filter.
