Recrystallization Post Lab Christina Wolverton 10 September 2016 TA: Alex Results: Percent Yield = [(Recovery of purified product Q4769J) / (Initial amount of Q4769J)] X 100 [(0.165g) / (1.003)] X 100 = 16.45% The total amount of solvent used to dissolve the unknown sample was approximately 15mL. The melting point of the purified compound was from 121.8°C to 126.6°C. The first potential identity was Benzoic Acid, and its mixed melting point range was 121.1°C to 126.0°C. The second potential identity was Benzamide, and its mixed melting point range was 110.1°C. Discussion/Conclusion: The initial mixture appeared to consist of finely ground sand and a few white clumps of the compound. The purified sample was white and puffy-like, meaning it was dry. Some issues included the compound being slightly difficult to melt at first. Because

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
