Unformatted text preview: strength of interaction between component and stationary phase. 6. Normal phase chromatography: polar adsorbent w/ nonpolar eluent Reversed-phase chromatography: nonpolar adsorbent w/ polar eluent Procedure : follow procedure on p.78-79 Results : 1. Weight of tomato paste 2. Weight of lycopene 3. percentage of lycopene 4. Weight of β-carotene 5. Percentage of β-carotene Q&A 1. Why did you never allow the column to go dry after you started the procedure? (A) it can create irregularities in the column (B) side reactions can occur between the stationary phase and air (C) it will slow the process of separation (D) it can cause rapid decay of the component mixture 2. Which will best help you separate the compounds with similar polarities? (A) increase the polarity of your solvents (B) take smaller fractions (C) decrease the amount of alumina (D) decrease the polarity of your solvents...
