Analysis of Analgesic Mixtures: An Organic Chemistry Experiment.
Martin, Ned H.
Journal of Chemical Education, v58 n10 p818-19 Oct 1981
Describes an experiment to analyze commercial analgesic preparations (pain relievers) by silica gel thin layer chromatography, followed by preparative (thick) layer chromatographic separation and spectroscopic analysis. Key difference from similar experiments is that students are responsible for devising suitable solvent systems for the thin layer chromatography separation. (SK)
