    environmental testing, they look for PCB’s in oil, and pesticides in ground water. In the food industry, they can test additives to determine concentrations of preservatives, vitamins, proteins, and amino acids.2 Chromatography is the process of separating a mixture, and has many different applications throughout the world. There are a variety of ways to conduct chromatography including column chromatography, paper chromatography, and thin layer chromatography. The particular experiment conducted and discussed is paper chromatography. This experiment will use chromatography to test and identify unknown pen inks based on tests done on known pen inks. Understanding the history of chromatography can help us understand different uses of the technique. A Russian botanist invented chromatography to separate and distinguish plant pigment. Mikhail Semenovich Tsvett trickled a mixture of dissolved pigments through a glass tube filled with a tight calcium carbonate…

    The role of paper chromatography is to separate various and different chemicals/mixtures to show individual components within. If there are any individual components within the mixture, then they will move up the paper at different speeds and this will make the components separate. When carrying out the process, drawing an origin line near the bottom of one of the ends on the chromatography paper will be the starting point of the mixtures that you are trying to separate when they move up the…

    Ali Youssef CHM 111-0A7L Mitra Jahangeri Paper Chromatography Lab Discussion The results of the Paper Chromatography process seem to have aligned with what was expected. When the capillary action on the paper had completed and the chromatograph was finished, the distance that each cation moved (D), as well as the distance that the solvent moved (L), could be properly measured. The distance that the solvent moved ended up being 7.05cm, a number that would represent the constant variable L in…

    Paper Chromatography Paper Chromatography is an analytical method that is used to separate coloured chemicals substances, especially pigments. This is how paper chromatography is conducted: Materials Chromatography Paper (Can also be Coffee Filter) Large Beaker (max one litre) Paper Clips/Sellotape & Skewer Stick Water soluble black marker Water Procedure: Draw a ink dot with the marker on each one of the chromatography paper near the bottom end of the paper. Then stick or paper clip the…

    Chromatography is a method of separation in which the components of a substance are separated and distributed between two phases, which are the mobile phases and stationary phase (1). There are multiple types of chromatograph, which includes paper chromatography, column chromatograph, retention chromatography, gas chromatography, liquid chromatography etc. Each technique has its own strengths and weaknesses, but all are useful in getting separations of different components (8). Since many…

    Part A Gas Chromatography What is it? Gas chromatography is a variation of chromatography used in analytical chemistry for separating and analysing components that can be vaporised without decomposition ("Gas Chromatography", 2016). This technique involves using a gas as the mobile phase. There are two types of gas chromatography: • Gas-solid chromatography – separates substances on the basis of their different strengths of adsorption on the solid • Gas-liquid chromatography – separates…

    Introduction Chromatographic process is a separation technique which has to do with the mass transfer of test sample between a stationary and mobile phase. HPLC (High Performace Liqud Chromatography) is a vast system which involves the use of a mobile and stationary phase to separate materials. The stationary phase is usually a column packed with solids (usually silica gel) while the mobile phase is usually a solvent or a mixture of various solvents. The mobile phase usually, is the carrier of…

    those chlorophyll’s pigment is green, and as a result we do not see any other pigments just by observing with the human eye. Thus, we use paper chromatography because the chromatography paper separates the different leaf pigments based on their solubility. Like the least soluble pigments…

    (1997) also isolated ferritin via protein expression of pET3 vector that contains 5F12 coding sequence in the NdeI sequence site for the H-type subunit of the frog ferritin. The vector host was Escherichia coli BL21-3 cells grown in medium containing sorbital and betaine. Ferritin synthesis was induced in mid-log cells using isothiopropyl thiogalactoside (IPTG), and the soluble ferritin was isolated, after sonication of the bacterial cells, by fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) on a Fast…
