solutions

1 mM Fluorescein

in 10 mM NaOH

It fades with time, so check the concentration of the old stocks.

MW = 332

1mM = 0.332g/L = 0.033g/100 mL

A = Ecl

Molar extinction coefficient of fluorescein at 485nm = 50358/mol.cm

so Absorbance 10^-5M = 0.50358

(1/100 of a 1mM solution =10^-5M)


10mM NaOH

MW = ~40

10mM = 0.01M = 0.4g/L
