Research on phytate in agar

Conference poster titled "Chelating soluble iron(II) from iron gall ink using calcium phytate in agar gel"

I pre­sent­ed a poster at the 2017 Gels in Con­ser­va­tion con­fer­ence, and pub­lished an arti­cle in the con­fer­ence preprints. It is an updat­ed ver­sion of the research from my the­sis. I have some ideas for fur­ther research, includ­ing the use of grat­ed agar or agar plugs to give a less defined bound­ary of the treat­ment area to reduce cock­ling and tide­lines, and match­ing the con­duc­tiv­i­ty of the solu­tion to the con­duc­tiv­i­ty of the paper to reduce swelling.
