is the yellow (xanthophyll) more soluble than chlorophyll? Also, i have performed a thin plate chromatography of tomatoe paste and i was wondering about the pigments that appeared. Results illustrated that at the top there was orange which is most likely the carotene and at the very bottom there was a dark yellow. does this mean all the lighter colours and bands seen in between had green at some point? they were not very noticable..so are they even present between the orange and the yellow? thanks
Re: in chromatography, does yellow appear before or after green?
