RE: comparisions of inks using paper chromatography



Have any of the members of this list ever compared the various ink
manufacturers' products using paper chromatography?  This involves putting a
premeasured drop of ink on the end of a absorbent paper strip and putting
that end in a solvent (in this case, probably water or alcohol). The colors
in the ink migrate through the paper, separating on the way to the other
end. http://wwwchem.csustan.edu/chem1002/mrsketch.htm offers a simple
method.
A simple way to determine the component colors in an ink, and arrive at
conclusions about its gamut, reflectance and color balance.  Do we have any
data and examples posted to the Web?
