Objective

To prepare agar plates and to prepare the starter culture of bacteria.

Description

Agar Plate Preparation

  1. Agar plate solution was prepared by adding 12.5 g LB and 10 g agar to 500 mL water.
  2. The plates were autoclaved for one hour
  3. Once the solution was cooled, 25 mL aliquots were poured into Petri dishes.
    • This made 20 agar plates


Data

Notes

To Do List this Week

  • Make additional quaternary ammonium salt films (wed or tues, Noah)
  • Crosslink quaternary ammonium salt films (thurs/fri)
  • Split the bacteria from the starter culture between the flasks for testing.
  • Measure UV Vis of bacteria in starter culture before adding films
  • Put films (cut in half) in flasks, then take periodic UV vis throughout the test.
  • DSC data analysis
