This digital teacher’s guide is intended for use with Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Principles of Chromatography Kit (item #840574). This laboratory activity addresses AP® Chemistry Big Idea 2 and Learning Objective 2.10. In the guided activity, students identify 3 food dyes in powdered drink mixes using paper chromatography and identify the components in plant pigment using thin-layer chromatography. In the inquiry activity, students design an experiment to separate food dyes in drink mixes and must select the proper mobile and stationary phases to effect an efficient separation.
The digital teacher’s manual is a 12-month eBook license to the Principles of Chromatography Kit teacher’s manual. You can also access the Digital Student Guide for this kit for free on
