chlorophyll paper chromatography

Hi netters,

I have a question that I hope that one of you or more than one of you can
answer.  I will be teaching an intro biology course this fall and would like to
do a plant pigment extraction followed by paper chromatography.  All of the
techniques that I have found use methanol and pet ether and I would rather not
use pet ether if I can avoid it.  Is there any chromatography solvent solutions
for chlorophyll etc; that do not use pet ether but work reasonably well.  I
would appreciate hearing about them.  Either e-mail me or post here.  Thanks a
