Tim Ivey 4/21/17 Experiment 2: Recrystallization and Melting Point Answer Sheet 1. The important solubility characteristics for a solvent for crystallization of an organic solid that is contaminated with a small amount of impurity are as follows: a. The solvent should be capable of dissolving the desired product at high temperatures, but incapable of dissolving the desired product at low temperatures. b. The solvent should be capable of dissolving impurities within the desired product at all temperatures, or insoluble at all temperatures so that it may be filtered off. 2. Percent recovery could be improved by doing an additional recrystallization process to the filtrate solution (mother liquor) left behind by the first experimental procedure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
