UV visible spectrometry

  1. Nov 4, 2015 #1
    i am conducting my thesis and i am adsorbing phenol with activated carbon, my original solution is clear(colorless) but when i cntact it with the adsorbent and filter it after a certain time, it became colored of some very pale yellow. i am just wondering will the color change have an effect on the reading on the spectrometer if my basis is 270 nm for the wavelength of phenol?
