CHROMATOGRAPHY is the separation of mixtures into their constituents by preferential adsorption by a solid, in this case as a strip of filter paper (paper chromatography).

Here’s what you’ll need for this experiment:
Coffee filter
popsicle stick
markers, felt tip pens, or food coloring
clear glass or dish

– First cut your coffee filter into strips
– Tape your coffee filter onto a popsicle stick
– Colour a line near the bottom of your filter with marker, ink, or food coloring
– Place enough water in your glass so that just the bottom of the filter will touch the water
– Hang your filter over the water with your popsicle stick
– Watch the colours separate
