Because each color within the dye exhibits different chemical and physical properties, the various colors will travel different distances up the paper depending on their properties. An unidentified color was also added, and by comparing the distances which each commercial color traveled, the various components of the unidentified dye could be determined. In addition to testing the dyes, various metal cations were tested to discover the ingredients of an unidentified mixture. By viewing the various distances traveled by each ion up the paper, the travel distances could be used to compare that of those in the mixture and determine which elements the mixture contained. One would assume prior to the experiment that the commercial dyes would be made up of primary colors...
