Today, I had a group meeting in my lab but I didn't have to present. I took the cobalt coupons out of the ODCA deposition and put them in the oven. I also ran the ODPA deposition through the IR to see if the monolayers are still present after the rinse in THF. The peaks were in the correct places in the spectra so I sonicated the cobalt coupons in THF for 15 minutes.
Tomorrow, I plan on using the IR to look at the cobalt coupons of the ODPA and the ODCA depositions.
