Question

1-There are many opportunities during a recrystallization to lose crystals. How could you improve your percent recovery? Explain.

2-What would you do to accelerate the process if the crystal formation is not observed in the expected time?

3-Which steps are the most important ones in recrystallization steps for purification?Explain your reason.

4-If there is a coloration known to be uncharacteristic of the sample, it can be removed by using a decolorizing agent like charcoal. Is the amount of charcoal added important for excellent purification? Explain your answer.
