Product Details

First, students use thin-layer chromatography (TLC) to separate the pigments in blue-green algae and spinach then compare the chromatograms of the two diverse species. The second activity enables students to envision the light reactions as dye is reduced when it substitutes within the electron-transport chain. Fresh spinach, spectrophotometers, cuvets, a strong light source and a blender are required and available separately.

Materials: Dichlorophenolindophenol*, Acetone*, Aluminum foil,* Blue-green algae extract*, Cheesecloth*, Chromatography solvent*, Lens paper Parafilm*, Phosphate buffer concentrate*, Graduated pipets*, Thin-stem pipets*, Spinach extract*, 3-mL Syringes, 5-mL Syringes, Thin-layer chromatography sheets*
