Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to learn how paper chromatography works and its applications. In this lab, we use paper chromatography to separate the colors of ink and then the colors of M&M’s. Applications of this include those used in forensics, which deal with separating inks or dyes in evidence or in a real lab, to separate ions or DNA. It provides us with basic information as to what a component can be made out of and the different bands of color that appear in this lab on the paper is what that color is made out of. Procedure The procedures did not change throughout the experiment and came from the online lab manual procedure for this lab experiment. Dillon, Stephanie. General Chemistry I Lab.
