Testing my Heating Mantle Capabilities

Checking and testing in progress. It has not been used for quite some time and now I am checking it out to see if it is OK and can meet the desired temperature I wanted to launch my new research.

It should be able to reach 500 oC. Today’s experiment showed that it reached 360 oC, merely based on the limitation of my mercury thermometer.


Hands on Lab Work?

Today, I entered the lab, not to monitor or to check but to do some tiny bit of experimental work. It has been such a long time since my PhD that I didn’t do any lab work. Well, it is mainly because I am venturing into a new research area. I was there at the lab with my Master and Undergraduate research students.
