Have your students perform paper chromatography using metal ions! In this kit, students learn more about the basics of paper chromatography by developing and evaluating their own chromatograms. Students determine the components of an unknown solution through qualitative analysis of three different metal ions—copper, nickel, and cobalt. A great activity to revitalize your chromatography unit. Includes complete instructions and all necessary chemicals, chromatography paper, and foil, along with background information and Teacher Notes with sample data and answers to all questions.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs. Large beakers or bottles are recommended for chromatography chambers and available separately. Toothpicks are also required.
