Case One

“Signed with a Kiss”

the discovery
The Discovery…
  • Before third period, Marie goes to her locker to grab her chemistry book. She and Christopher have shared this locker for the last semester when they started going together
  • As she pushes Christopher’s geometry books aside, it falls to the floor and a note falls out.
    • “…can’t wait to see you again, baby. Last nite was so much fun! Call me on my cell after school today.”
  • Marie was already bugged out by the words of the note, but on top of that, the girl had the nerve to sign the note with nothing but a kiss!
the plan
The Plan
  • After school, Marie calls Mark for support. Between sobs, Marie explains to Mark, “I was so cold to Christopher after Chem class. I’m afraid he thinks I know about the note.” Mark reassures her, “Naw, he has no idea.
  • “Okay,” she says, “let’s continue with our plan.”
  • Just make sure you get a sample from each of those girls. Oh yeah, and make sure that you have plenty of nail polish remover. I think that will be the best solvent to separate the mixtures. When I come over tomorrow, I’ll bring the coffee filters.”
  • The next day, Marie and Mark meet up at her house to begin the investigation phase of their plan.
    • Begin lipstick chromatography lab
how to catch your man cheating
How to Catch Your Man Cheating!
  • Lipstick Chromatography Lab Protocol Materials: Chromatography paper or Coffee filters Scissors 3 different Lipsticks similar in shade, but different brands Acetone or Nail Polish remover with Acetone Beaker or Cup large enough for 3 strips of paper (about 500 ml)Tape Procedure: 1. The teacher has smeared samples of the lipstick from the note and each of the suspects onto filter paper. Each group will analyze one suspect or the sample from the note 3 times. 2. Carefully pour 10 ml of solvent into the beaker. 3. Place all three strips of paper into the beaker so that the paper touches the solvent, but that the level of the solvent does NOT reach the lipstick. 4. Secure the top of each paper strip to the beaker with tape if necessary to keep it from slipping. 5. After 15 minutes remove all the samples from the beaker and place the papers flat on the bench top. 6. Measure the distance the acetone traveled up each strip of paper. Also measure the distance each component moved up the paper. 7. Make a data table with average Rf value for each component in your lipstick sample.
  • After discovering that Christopher and her girl Muhsinah were not the friends she thought they were, Marie confronted them with the evidence. Christopher and Muhsinah were shocked at her use of chemistry to catch them. Marie recovered from the nasty breakup with Christopher with the help of Mark's comforting shoulder... ;)
  • This scene and laboratory protocol were adapted from, "Who's Lipstick?" in Crime Scene Investigations by Pam Walker and Elaine Wood, 1998. The images of the kiss and paper chromatograpy where found at chromato.html and, respectively.

Case Two

Muddy Waters

case highlights
Case Highlights
  • While walking home from school, John and Cory discover a gooky stream of water behind StoneHenge Mall. The boys peer into the creek where the stream runs to and gasp at the putrid smell of garbage and gas in the air near the banks of the creek.
  • In chemistry class the next day during Mrs. Murphy’s lecture on mixtures, John and Corey are deep into a conversation about what they saw in the creek. Mrs. Murphy says, “Why don’t you all collect some samples from the creek for extra credit and we can figure out what’s causing these fish to go belly-up.”
  • Now that the three months have passed, the class has 6 samples of the creek water.
  • After discovering that the stream was clearly contaminated with a number of pollutants. Seriously high levels of oil were a common component shared by all of the samples.
  • After sending the oil samples to Emory University for analysis, the students received the data and decided it was time to take action against the businesses that used the products found in the creek samples.
case three

Case Three

I am Nora’s Medulla Oblongata


Avagadro’s Number and Molarity

  • As they loaded her into the ambulance, Nora lay on the stretcher, silent and non-responsive. How could the situation have gotten so out of control?
    • When I saw Nora after chemistry class on Friday, she was parading down the hall with a couple of her girls. As always, she was walking down the hall like she owned the place. Even though she had so much attitude, we all liked her. She was the life of a party and the class clown.
  • Hey Jayson!” she yelled down the hall. “Let’s get going right after last period today. I have to run an errand after school and before Tanya’s party.”
    • Had I have known how that night was going to go down, I would have taken her straight home after school that day.
  • When the paramedics arrived they asked me what she had taken. I wasn’t sure I should tell them, but they told me that they have antidotes to some drugs. I told them I thought it was heroin. But I didn’t know how much she took. The paramedic said they had an antagonist to block the effects of heroin, and if it hasn’t been too long and if she hadn’t taken too much, they could reverse the effects of the drug.
