ANALYSIS OF SPINACH EXTRACTS BY THIN LAYER CHROMATOGRAPHY

What is the purpose of treating your spinach with methanol prior to extraction?

  1. You are using light petroleum to extract the organic components of your spinach sample. Why does the extraction solvent also contain methanol?
  2. If you placed some light petroleum and some water in a separating funnel, you would get two layers. Which layer would be on the top and why (Hint: see Manual p 8)?
  3. By considering their structures (Manual p 2), explain why β-carotene has a higher Rf than xanthophyll.
  4. Delete the appropriate (bold) words to complete the following:If the solvent is more polar than the sample, then the sample/solvent binds more strongly to the polar adsorbent of the TLC plate than the sample/solvent, thus the sample ascends the TLC plate quickly/slowly.
  5. If a compound has an Rf value of 0.5 using 50% dichloromethane/50% light petroleum as eluting solvent, will it then have an Rf value greater or less than 0.5 if the following solvents were used as eluants (Manual p 5):
    1. a)  80% dichloromethane / 20% light petroleum
    2. b)  100% light petroleum
  6. What effect on the Rf value of the compound would be observed if the developing jar had been inadvertently wet (with water) (Manual p 5)? Why?

A masterpiece of assignment by , written on 2020-03-12

Oh my god! This writing company has saved me from so many bothering and figured out my problem in the best way possible. I am not fond of reading and when this book review was given to me as part of my coursework, I went into depression. But I must say, my writer came up with an amazing book review covering all the major aspects of the book nicely. I am waiting for other assignments to come so that I would come here again. The place is good and quite reasonable as well which makes it easy for me to manage my budget.

My order went 3 hours late and I also went mad. Then the customer support team calmed me down and offered me a flat discount of 50%. However, I did get my order and chilled out as the work was exactly what I requested. Next time I would place my order a bit sooner to save any trouble.
