Understanding the process of photosynthesis and the pigments involved has never been easier. Using chromatography, students separate plant pigments from their own samples and then identify the plant’s chloroplasts based on Rf values. Continuing their exploration, students then study the impact of various environmental factors on the photosynthesis reaction rates in different plants using DPIP indicator solution and a spectrophotometer.

The 8-Station Kit includes enough materials for a class of 32 students working in groups of 4. The 1-Station Kit includes materials for 1 group of 4 students. The 8-Station Refill replaces consumed items. The digital teacher’s manual is a 12-month eBook license to the Plant Pigments and Photosynthesis Kit teacher’s manual. You can also access the digital student guide for this kit for free on Carolina Science Online®.

Note: Order the kit and refill with the perishable material included or with a prepaid coupon to request perishable material later at your convenience.
