Unformatted text preview: allize Kavalactone A. You have all the equipment you need EXCEPT a thermometer. The crude kavalactone A is insoluble in water (at all temperatures) but soluble in boiling methanol (64 °C). The problem: kavalactone A decomposes at 60 °C. In fifteen (15) words or less, explain how you might be able to recrystallize kavalactone A without destroying it. (7 pts) 2. Molecular‐Level Solubility. Draw and orient three (3) molecules of CH3OH around kavalactone A (shown below) in an effort to describe why this compound might be soluble in met...
