In paper chromatogaphy lab, which dyes are least attracted to the stationary phase


Expert Answer

Step 1

Adjusting the polarity of the mobile phase caused different components to travel through the column.  The less polar mobile phase interacted more with the blue dye (less polar), causing it to flow out of the column.

Step 2


Conversely, the more polar mobile phase interacted more with the red dye.   The solutions used were getting less polar as the...
