Hey all, this week has been a long last week of term. I have written my first draft of the proposal to get money from the Senior Experience funds for the ACS National Meeting and for new materials to make new concentrations of our lithium doped RTILs. It’s been an exciting week here in Lake … More Week 10- The Last Update of the YEAR!!
The Lovis has been confirmed as working, and the next step in data collection is to coordinate who gets it and what’s being looked at when. Between myself and CVH, seeing as we’re both relatively close by this winter, I think we can both be completed before mid-December at the latest. The accuracy had been under question because … More Hetcher, week of 14 Nov
Sorry about the late posting, but things have definitely speed up the last week or so. This week we finished and submitted our abstract for the ACS national meeting, so San Fran here we come! I also took our first set of data for the 10:1 C3mPyrrTFSI LiTFSI solution using the Lovis and the density … More Week 9 In Review
The ACS Undergraduate Poster Session has received an abstract from myself and Allison. It took a fair amount of development and specificity, but then again, that’s just hard science. I like the end product, as it portrays just about every step we’ve taken in the process of understand just what the heck is going on … More Hetcher, week of 7 Nov
This week has been mostly devoted to writing the abstract for the student poster secession at the ACS meeting this spring. We currently are on draft v.5. which I am fairly satisfied with. It is interesting to spend so much time trying to construct one paragraph of writing. It almost seems like an extension of … More Week 8
The synthesis of [C4dmim][TFSI] has been completed and is ready for determination of transport properties. We have roughly 25 g more, which relates to about 20 mL. Plenty for both the viscometer and conductivity meter, when it’s ready. From what I understand, the Karl Fischer titration machine will be the first one to test with, … More Hetcher, week of 31 Oct
