A change in paper shape is described for use in descending paper chromatography. The "flask-shaped" paper provides greater reliability in the identification of amino acids in unknown mixtures. As many as three samples of unknown and/or known components can be run simultaneously on the same paper and under the same conditions. The method has been used by other investigators for the separation of pteridines and carbohydrates and has provided increased resolution and adaptibility.
