Nhi Vu General Chemistry Agnes Rafoulko Recrystallization and Melting Point Determination Introduction : In this experiment, our objective is to determine the melting point of a recrystallized unknown chemical. Using this information, we must then determine its identity by comparing this temperature with the melting points of known chemicals. Chemical Responsibility : It is imperative that we wear our safety goggles at all times. The chemicals we are interacting with may irritate or be toxic by ingestion. Accordingly, we must wear gloves when handling directly with the chemicals. We must remember to dispose our filter paper into the beaker labeled “used filter paper,” dispose of our filter paper in the Buchner funnel in the beaker labeled “used filter paper,” dispose of the liquid in our filter flask down the drain, dispose of our crystals in the “waste experiment 2 crystals” beaker, dispose of our plastic boats into the plastic boats beaker, and dispose of our capillary tubes into the capillary tubes beaker.

    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.
