Re: blank and substrate control give OD reads

Is there anything in the buffer that absorbs light at the wavelength you are using for your OD readings? It might be worth running the buffer in a spectrophotometer and comparing against water at wavelengths near your OD measurement. Dear jonmoulton, ...

How do i know if a reaction is endothermic or exothermic?

... what i did wrong and how to solve it. In additon, my textbook states that an endothermic reaction is a reaction which requires energy overall and absorbs heat. While exothermic reactions release energy overall and releases heat. It also states that Catabolic reactions are exothermic reactions ...

Re: Resonance transfer

... if they dock as expected the fluorochromes will be in close proximity. When you test the molecules separately, the first labelled biomolecules absorbs blue and emits green, while the second labelled biomolecule absorbs green and emits red. If you mix them in solution and find the mixture can ...

Re: molar extinction coefficient

Yes, that sounds too low, at least for those wavelengths where methyl red absorbs strongly. Did you correct your concentrations for the dilution you made as you mixed your stock solution into liquid prior to making the spectrometer measurement?
