Today Stacy presented on LSD and ergotamine. She talked about the effects it has on the human body and the mechanism by which it affects the body’s functions. She also gave an outline of the methods by which it is synthesized.
Kunal talked about electroplating, in which a current is used to plate ions onto electrodes. He tried to electroplate nutrients from soil. Unfortunately, the soil he used came from a plant bed, and the plants had sucked most of the nutrients out of the soil, so very little was plated onto the electrodes.
