Objectives

  • Analyze DSC data taken on 9/14/2012
  • Dilute 20 ppm SO4-2 stock solutions made on 9/19/2012 to be used for atomic absorption calibration
    • Dilute to 1ppm, 2ppm, 5ppm, 10ppm, 15ppm
  • Prepare a 500mL solution of 1.25g CuSO4 using HPLC grade H2O
  • Prepare more glutaraldehyde films
  • Prepare a thin PVOH film for use in FTIR
  • Run X-Ray diffraction of 2:1 NaMT:Fe2O4 clay dried on 9/19/2012\
  • Prepare glutaraldehyde fixant solution


Fixant Solution preparation

  1. Weigh out 200g Na2SO4 (actually measured out 200.1459g)
  2. Place in a 2000mL Erlenmyer flask
  3. Using a graduated cylinder, add 1000mL deionized H2O. Add a large magnetic stir bar to the flask
  4. Place Erlenmyer flask on a stir plate. Stir until all dissolves
  5. Add 20mL concentrated H2SO4
  6. Gently mix solution and using a funnel pour the solution into four 250mL capped bottles
  • Note: H2SO4 is highly corrosive. Use extreme caution


Film preparation

  1. Glutaraldehyde film preparation

The films were prepared following the General Protocol described on2012/09/12

  • Prepared films
    • 1.000gPVOH MW 22,000+0.8wt% glutaraldehyde
    • 0.9499gPVOH MW 22,000+0.8wt% glutaraldehyde+0.052mL PDMS
    • 1.002gPVOH MW 22,000+0.8wt% glutaraldehyde
  • Calculations for film preparation
*PDMS density=0.97g/mL
 5%(1.00gPVOH)=0.95g+0.05gPDMS
 0.05g(1mL/0.97g)=0.0515mL PDMS must be added to create 5% replaced PDMS film
  1. Thin Film preparation

The film was prepared following the General Protocol described on2012/08/29

  • Prepared film
    • 0.2g PVOH MW 22,000 in a large dish
