column chromatography

posted by .

A student loaded a mixture, dissolved in 1cm3 of dichloromethane, CH2Cl2, onto a small flash chromatography column and then proceeded to elute with hexanes/ethyl acetate 10:1. He/she found that all of the mixture came off in the first 4 fractions, with no separation. What technical mistake did the student make?
