Chemistry Students Learn About Molecular Attraction

In Honors Chemistry, students are learning how to identify unknown samples using chromatography paper. The compounds that have a stronger molecular attraction to the chromatography paper will travel through the paper slower than compounds that have a weaker molecular attraction to the chromatography paper.
