Chromatography is a process that separates different components from two phases: (one that is stationary, and the other that is in a mobile phase).
Chromatography is used to help scientists find what is moving and what is in a single place. This helps them find different reactions in certain parts of the experiment such as color bands on a marker and the distance they had from their original location. This helps them determine how much the solvent affected the solute.
You can find the different pigments by leaving a strip of the cells in a jar of alcholol.
Different types of Chromatography include Liquid, gas, paper, superficial fluid, and etc.
In the first picture you see a great example of how the experiment turns out where the color of the material mixes and will eventually separate. This type of Chromatography is liquid chromatography separating the dyes and their colors or other components.
In the second picture we see another example of the experiment. The experiment is using thin layer chromatography and in this experiment the results run faster and better separations.
The third picture is an example of the results from a chromatography experiment with Gases. This experiment is called Gas Chromatography and it is finding the different components in the experiment and it measures how much of it is in the gas.
