Product Description

By: The Flinn Staff

Separate complex organic molecules using thin-layer chromatography (TLC). Our simple, inexpensive, and easy-to-use lab activity clearly illustrates for students the principles of thin-layer chromatography. Best of all, we know you'll be pleased with the accuracy of your results! Chromatograms are run on five different sample dye solutions and one of three unknowns. Students then compare and identify the components by calculating their rate of flow (Rf) value for each dye.

Good technique is the key to successfully running a TLC experiment. Our lab instructions are clearly written and include a detailed explanation of TLC along with tips and hints to ensure student success and understanding. Dye samples, chromatography solvent, TLC plates, capillary tubes, and instructions are included.

Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Perform this experiment in a fume hood or well-ventilated lab.
