Today, I ran the 24 hour deposition through the IR and saw in the spectra that the peaks were there. Since the monolayers formed, I rinsed the cobalt coupons in THF for 15 minutes and put them in the oven. I then ran the 1 hour deposition through the IR and the peaks were still there after sonication.
Next week, I plan to try out a contact angle measurement on the 1 hour deposition that was a success. Also, I will check if the peaks are still on the 24 hour deposition.
