Welcome!

This blog is a collection of thoughts about science. Its title refers to a technique for separating out different colored dyes in an ink mixture. Just as chromatography illuminates the individual parts of a mixture, I’ll be picking parcels of science and expanding upon those bands of knowledge. The result will hopefully be a blend as rich and colorful as that created by ink chromatography.
