Tasklist

  • Make more beads
    • Use fume hood from now on
    • You will make beads each day until further notice
  • Finish Friday's analyses
  • Adsorption of MG through your columns
    • adjust flow rate
    • adjust beginning concentrations
    • determine total column capacity


Protocol

30 % clay solution beads were prepared with the following volumes: Screenshot 2016-09-21 at 11.11.07 AM.png

Except for the solution, we followed | this protocol

Observations

The beads looked finer and smaller than previous beads. After removing ethylacetate, some of the beads show to have clumped, both for 30 and for 40 percent clay. Additionally, the beads seemed to have a lower density of water: now, the beads form the upper phase of the water - beads layers.
