Paper chromatography is a method of analyzing substances based on their solubility in different solvents. In this method, a paper strip is coated with a small amount of solvent, usually water or alcohol.

First, you would want to separate the dyes of the different colours. Paper chromatography is a method of separating out the components of a mixture. The way this works is that the dyes will travel at different speeds depending on how porous the paper is. So, the more porous the paper, the further the dye will travel.

When a mixture of coloured inks is spread out over a piece of paper, the different colours spread out in parallel lines. This phenomenon is called chromatography and it’s a great way to separate a mixture of different coloured inks. However, in order to separate the inks, they must first be dissolved in a solvent.

Paper chromatography is a technique used to separate the components of a mixture. The mixture is applied to a strip of filter paper which is then placed on a piece of glass or plastic with the solvent moving up the paper. The components of the mixture will travel at different rates depending on how close they are to each other chemically.
