The Last Wupdate

I’ll try to remove my emotions from this post as it is my last entry for this term. This past week I apparently have psychologically manipulated Allison to get her to collect the conductivity data for me, as after I set up the liquid cell, she has proceded to remove it, clean it, clean LC2, put … More The Last Wupdate

As the term draws to an end, of course it’s difficult to find time in the lab. However, I–pardon the expression as a vegetarian–killed two birds with one stone by doing my final project for Advanced Inorganic Chemistry on iron gall ink! Thanks to a paper I found on ACS (, I now have reference Raman … More Caren Sullivan–November 18th, 2015

Wupdate #4!

Short week (Thur-Tue) this week so I’m putting this one to press quicker than usual. In the lab this week I took the remaining density data for C(n)mimTFSI. This occupied most of my time During my meeting with Allison, we talked about the papers she had confiscated from me. Essentially we (she) made a list of … More Wupdate #4!

Wupdate #3!

On my miniscule 3 hours per week, I actually managed to make some really good progress! I began taking density data of the 1-alkyl-3-methylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethanesulfonyl)imide family. I also taught Leif (my roommate) how to pronounce some of the ionic liquid names, which he was really excited about. Possible chemistry major? He said he’ll sit this one out and stick … More Wupdate #3!
