Today, I did a lot. First, I started to work on my abstract because I have to write my own by next Wednesday. I also started on my power point. I have to present on Wednesday so I need to hurry and get that done. It was my time to use the IR for the day, so I took my cobalt coupons out of the oven. I scanned them through the IR and saw that they both had stable monolayers. After writing down all of the wavenumbers, I had to graph them. First, I made 3 different graphs. The initial deposition, the rinse in hydrochloric acid, and the sonication in THF. After I made sure all of the graphs had the same measurements, I merged all three of them into one graph. I then had to label all of the peaks in the graph and have different colors for each phase on there.
I also had to write my paper on what I did in the past week for my group meeting tomorrow. I added my graph to it and everything else that I did.
