Cover: Glowmatography

Glowmatography is a playful descriptor for the chromatographic separation of chemiluminescent dyes that are actively emitting light. Glowmatographic separations, which can be carried out using easily obtained materials (glow sticks, chalk, and acetone or alcohol), often reveal surprising color combinations of fluorescent dyes. In , Thomas S. Kuntzleman, Kasey R. Bunker, and Ashlee A. Bartlett show how these experiments can be used to illuminate chemical topics such as chromatography, intermolecular forces, and the chemistry of glow sticks. The experiment is easy and fast to carry out and can be conducted as an in-class demonstration or performed by students in laboratory or outreach settings.
