Over the last week two tasks have been addressed. First I have been looking into other anions pairs for CxMIM. The anions had to be small and symmetrical. Then criterion had to be addressed for each member of the prospective family. The criterion included their liquid temperature range, their possible corrosive properties, and their hydrophobicity. Hexafluorophoshate was the most promising. Additionally this week I continued to make a deeply comprehensive analysis of the previous LabVIEW program in order to have a full view of the task, and though this analysis is not complete many approaches on continuing the program have been found and thus progress can be made again. Yay.
