Mike Vitale Professor Golden CHE*111 25 February 2008 Separating and Identifying Food Dyes by Paper Chromatography The purpose of this lab was to separate colors of different food dyes using different liquids, or solvents. We will also determine the Rf value of each of the food dyes. I believe that if the dye follows the solvent up the index card, then the drop of dye will be separated into different colors. Data: Water Rubbing Alcohol 0.10% salt water Starting time 7:18 7:18 7:18 Ending time 7:25 7:56 7:25 Elapsed time, min 7 38 7 Distance solvent moved, cm 7.4 4.2 7.0 Water Dye Color Distance spot moved, cm Yellow 5.5 Red 5.3 Blue 5.6 *Blue/Pink 4.8 Green Green/Yellow 5.5 Green/Blue 5.8
