2 Process: 1.a pencil line is drawn across the chromatography paper to indicate the starting position of mixture spots.
2.1 2. important to use a pencil because inks will sumuge

2.2 results:
3 How does it work?
4 How to identify colourless substances?

5 applications of chromatography
5.1 separate and identify dyes and drugs
5.1.1 identify chemicals sprayed on vegetables determine purity of a sample
6 Advantages of chromatography
6.1 allow analysis if a tiny amount of chemicals
6.1.1 sensitive and highly reproducible allow analysis of many samples in a time.
7 How do we interpret the result of chromatography?
7.1 If the chromatogram shows food colouring is a mixture of 2 dyes, It is not pure.
