I wasn't here yesterday so I had to do what I was supposed to do today. In the morning, I went over my power point with the other SEED student. They said that I did a good job and I'm getting better at talking louder. After that meeting, I worked on my blog challenge. I got done with the pictures and captions but I still didn't finish with the interview. There was also a speaker today that we went to. After we came back from that, I had plenty to do. First, I ran my cobalt and nickel coupons through the IR. It took some time because the scans are a little over 4 minutes long and I had 6 of the coupons to scan. I then sonicated the cobalt coupons in hydrochloric acid and the nickel coupons in tetrahydrofuran. Also, I ran more coupons through the IR. This time is was 50% ODPA with 50% ODCA on Ti and 50% ODPA with 50% ODCA on TiALV. I ran all six of the coupons and put them back in the oven.
