the story of the progression on my research...
plan for today: GET FAMILIAR WITH HYDRODISTILLATION METHOD to extract oil from plant.
i'd spent my time at lab from 9 am to 5.30 p.m..
just waiting for my plant from pak pin (lab assistant),.. while waiting for him.. i'd set up the hydrodistillation apparatus similar to the picture below.. the one that use to extract the essential oil from tepus huma (zingiber grifithii)..
unfortunately the plant is hardly to find.. uhuk.. so plan for today is hancus lebur.. huhu
lastly, i'd discuss with my supervsor, and we'd decided to change to a new plant which is lengkuas merah.. a kind of lengkuas hutan and something like that la.. and have a little bit difference with ordinary lengkuas that we'd use in cooking..
how bout my tepus huma (red gingerword)? the plant that i'd plan to use before..? mmm.. say good bye to it.. huhuhu
