  • To create PPF with guanine and adenine

Bench Work

  • using PPF-20 from Elaine 7/13/2012 - two vials: added 750 mL DEF (diethyl formamide) and 250 mL ethanol to each. added 8 mg of guanine to one and added 12 mg of adenine to the other. left over night


  • the adenine did not all dissolve making the solution cloudy, white and opaque. the guanine appeared to all dissolve.
  • the next morning the solutions where both purple which is likely due to the PPF dissolving due to the ehtanol therefore there is free zinc-porphyrin in the solution.
