Last Thursday night I started showing a video demonstrating the technique of thin-layer chromatography. I also pointed out where to find this link. Let me point you at it again:
Lab techniques (MIT videos): TLC (thin-layer chromatography) (16 min)
(located in Off Campus section of our Links page)
You might also like the video and animation provided by the Interactive Lab Primer. I haven’t watched it so you tell me which one, MIT or Interactive Lab, should go into the lab manual.
Please watch one video or the other before lab this week. Students who finish their columns by 4 PM will be expected to do some TLC analyses before leaving the lab. Stragglers will need to watch the videos again before next week’s lab.
