Create more PVA/clay beads for ICP analysis of Pb and Hg stock solutions. Create malachite green stock solution for Na-montmorillonite (aka closite) for UV-Vis analysis.
MW of MG = 364.1 g/mol
Following bead procedure from previous semester with adjustment in carrier fluid rate (1.0 mL/min). This change has occurred due to stalling of grey pump at the faster rate, 2.0 mL/min. 1.0 mL/min seems to have no affect on aggregation of the beads and does not cause the pump to stall when running for longer periods of time. An added benefit to this new rate, the carrier fluid, and the PVA/clay and gluteraldehyde syringes run out at the same times. This will make refilling syringes easier when making multiple batches of new beads in the future.
