Abstract

An experiment in anion exchange chromatography using a pair of colorful proteins has been described. This material allows instructors to introduce important biochemical engineering and physical biochemistry principles into the chemical engineering curriculum. The visual appeal and low cost of supplies will make the experiments an effective teaching tool in core courses focused on separation processes. The variety of possible behavior will make the experiments a robust addition to unit operations laboratories or biochemical engineering electives.
