  • Adam Hasham, Sam Heavenrich, Jayanth Prakhya, Enoch Tieu

  • Separates mixtures (physical method)Involves:Stationary Phase; SurfaceMobile Phase; Solvent Quantifiable:Retention Factor / Rate of Flow (Rf)Can be:Preparative: separates mixture for further useAnalytical: measures relative proportions of componentsPreparative more easily studied

    Rf = Distance traveled by solute/Distance traveled by solvent

  • Mikhail Semenovich TsvettSeparate Tints / Types of ChromatographyTrickled mixture through glass tube with Calcium Carbonate powderPigments stuck to powderDifferent degrees of strength Coloured bands

  • PartitionBased on the thin film formed on the surface of a solid support by a liquid stationary phaseSolute equilibrates between the mobile phase and the stationary liquid.Ion ExchangeResin is used to covalently attach anions or cations by electrostatic forcesSolute Mobile Liquid Phase have opposite charge

  • Molecular ExclusionNo attraction between stationary phase and soluteLiquid or Gaseous Mobile Phase separates molecules according to sizeAffinityMost selectiveInteraction between only 1 component of solute and stationary phase moleculeOnly the specific component is attracted to the stationary phase

  • Adsorption: When a fluid solute accumulates on the surface of a solid or liquidDifferent amounts of the components of a mixture are adsorbed to the 2 phasesAs mobile phase moves through stationery phase, the substances that are easily adsorbed will lagSeparation created

  • Archer JP Martin and Richard LM Synge in 1941Strip of porous filter paper substituted for powderUsed to separate proteinsLater used to Separate and Identify components of various mixturesIn industrial settings, Paper Chromatography has been replaced by more sophisticated methods

  • Place a drop of a mixture on the paperDip one edge of the paper into the mobile phaseThrough capillary action, adsorbent will move up the paperOnce adsorption occurs and the paper dries, spray-on reagentReagent will reveal change in color

  • Purpose:To predict the composition of various mixtures using Paper Chromatography

  • Pigment applied to Strip of Chromatography PaperStrips hung on rack at equal lengthsAdsorbent added (70% Isopropyl Alcohol) Rack removed once solvent travelled to the top of each stripThe final position of solvent markedThe final position of pigments markedDistance travelled by the mobile phase and each colour measured

  • The Mixture involving Red, Yellow, and Blue Food Coloring PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 1 minute

  • The Mixture involving Red, Yellow, and Blue Food Coloring PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 6 minutes

  • The Mixture involving Red, Yellow, and Blue Food Coloring PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 18 minutes

  • The Spinach, Pomegranate and Blue PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 0 minutes

  • The Spinach, Pomegranate and Blue PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 5 minutes

  • The Spinach, Pomegranate and Blue PigmentsApproximate elapsed time 13 minutes

  • Defined as Rate of Flow or Retention FactorCalculated by dividing Distance travelled by a component over Distance travelled by the mobile phase

  • Rf = Degree of AdsorptionVariances caused by Intermolecular ForcesBetween Solute and Mobile Phase Solute carried further by Adsorbent / More adsorption when the forces between them are greaterForces between Solute and Stationary PhaseMore adsorbtion onto Stationary Phase when the forces between them are greaterIn Both Cases:Polarity Major FactorH-bonding Larger Factor but capability limitedLondons Dispersion Forces Weak

    *Title SlideTitle Slide*********************Notice the nitrogen/oxygens follwo pattern for h-bonding**Device similar to a spectroscope would be useful to accurately analyze the colour and match to known composition/elements

    *Other methods of chromatography have other methods of quantifying the results. These are more accurate in many cases.***Travels by Capillary ActionSolid matrix inside large metal tube (packed)*Travels by Capillary ActionSolid matrix inside large metal tube (packed)Travels by Capillary ActionSolid matrix inside large metal tube (packed)**
