@Diane Puckett That sound like a good idea, im finding that a big problem with academic work is the lack of of hands-on-work and the experience that goes with it. Next best thing from getting that experience is talking to someone already with it.

@justanassembler I managed to get my hands on a graphite crucible and im going to try it without the seperator. I saw the stuff you were talking about online and hopefully there is a college registered site i can buy it off. Biggest problem im having is the places im actually allowed to buy this stuff from.

kiln was will bond partially to your glass. What type of crucible are you using? It sounds like some kind of refractory ceramic material. If its a small crucible, you might think of using graphite instead. Also, if possible, could a moderator move this to technical?

Its a thermal gravimetric analysis type crucible so it's about 20ml in capacity and although I dont know for sure, I think it's an alumina crucible. I think I can get my hand on a graphite crucible, but my head would be wanted on a plate by the guy who owns them, if it stuck. Is there any chance this could happen?

Apologies for asking this in the wrong place, first post.
