I just completed a paper chromatography lab at school (Gr. 12 Biology) and I have a pretty simple (maybe) question based on my results. Do all plants contain multiple pigments? Would it be possible for a plant to have only chlorophyll a/b and carotene or would it have to also have some levels of anthocyanins and betalains? Based on my results, a maple leaf contains only chlorophyll and carotene 1 and a snowball leaf contains only chlorophyll and pheophytin. Just wanted to see if this was caused by an error in the testing or if it is, in fact, possible. Thanks.
