(3) Crystallization Abbreviations and definitions RT - room temperature EtOH - ethanol I/W - ice water solute - the chemical you want to dissolve in a solvent solvent - generally, the liquid that you want to dissolve your solute into solvent system - a mixture of two or more solvents boiling point - the temperature at which the vapor pressure of the solution equals the the external pressure dissolution - the process of solvation, or the process of dissolving a solute into a solvent Some helpful hints During the crystallization process, it is important to optimize the volume of solvent used. There are two crystallizations that you are performing in this laboratory assignment. Solvent A : water Hints: Since solubilities of solutes tend to be temperature dependent, the most amount of solute can be dissolved in a solvent is at the boiling point of the solvent. Raise the temperature of the solvent (water) to the boiling point and then add a small amount of it to the solute that you wish to dissolve. The key is to keep adding the solvent until you reach the point where the solute
