Chromatography is a technique that separates a mixture into its different components. In this case, junior scientist Phoebe is using chromatography to find out what make some plants green (chlorophyll), some red (anthocyanins) and some both (carotenoids). You'll need an oven, a variety of leaves, three small containers with lids, a mortar and pestle, white coffee filters and a solvent, such as nail polish remover.
