Chemicals: Activity Kit, Paper Chromatography to Separate Chemical Substances (#AC2503)
Chromatography is the oldest documented technique to separate chemical substances. In this activity, students will perform paper chromatography on three individual dyes and a mixture of dyes to determine if all three dyes are in in the mixture. They will understand not only the components of a chromatography system, but also why different substances move at different rates within the system.
Suitable for STEM and home school curriculums, the kit contains enough materials for 15 groups of students. Includes: Crystal Violet, Starch, Safranin O, Toluidine Blue, Chromatography Mixture, Ethanol, Filter Paper Sheets, and Capillary Tubes. Also includes a Teacher’s Manual and Student Study Guide copymasters for instructional use, as well as Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for product information and handling procedures. IS2503
