Product Description
Inks and dyes are usually a conglomerate of different chemicals and pigmented molecules. Where the interaction of pigments refracts and reflects the wavelengths of light in such a way that we see all the different color combinations of the rainbow. But would it be neat to see what distinct pigments make-up the colors of the inks and dyes that we utilize a daily basis to write to each other with. The ability to do such is based on the principles of chromatography. While there are a number of different chromatography methods, the simplest and easiest to do is the thin-paper chromatography.
The goal of this experiment is examine how dyes and inks that we regularly use are actually mixtures of a number of different chemical compounds and color. We will be able to determine this by comparing the results of the paper chromatography for different inks and dyes being exposed to different solvents.
