Day 6 (6/7/09) – Monday
It’s a new week and my jobs continue…
-Met my Prof for the first time as a Ph.D student. Discusses few things regarding faculty jobs and some research job as well.
-Met my friend Tun and Mr. Amin (the supplier) at lab to discuss about the quartz reactor we plan to use for our experiments.
-Set up a general experimental rig to test it out. Have not completed yet. The GC seems to have weird problem going on. Not sure what’s the problem. Will ask Fadhzir’s help to look at it. The quartz reactor we recently bought seems to be so thin and brittle. It was not as thick as the reactors I purchase in 2002 which has thickness about 2mm. The idea is just to run the experiment, get the feel of it, make sure the GC is running fine… We’ll continue with the job later tomorrow. At least we’ve done something and we are closer to run the experiment tomorrow.
