Is Procion Red Dye a suitable model for chemistry lab?
I am wondering the same thing myself!! Please someone! anyone! answer the question. In order to be more descriptive, is procion red dye a suitable substitue for PAHS for chemsitry lab?
It is not ideal because the structure of Procion Red Dye and Benzo(a)pyrene are very different. Benzo is a 5 carbon ring structure while Procion is made up of 3 carbon rings and 1 carbon-nitrogen ring. Procion is also made up of chlorine, nitrogem, sodium, oxygen and sulfer.
Good luck on the lab report fellow Aggies!!!
