Recrystallization
Objective/Abstract:
The purpose of this lab is to purify solids contaminated by relatively small amount of impurities by a technique called Recrystallization. Compounds that have different solubility at different temperature usually can be recrystallized.
Formulas and Structures:

Benzoic Acid

Methanol
Percent Recovery: Indicates how much of the active ingredient was able to recover after the purification method.

Weight of benzoic acid obtained after recrystallization % Recovered = x100

I turned on the electrical heated sand bath and added the sold and a boiling stick to the test tube and gradually added desired hot water.
After boiling begins, I continued to add water until the sold dissolved
I removed the boiling stick, I corked the tube, clamped as it cooled, and observed recrystallization begin.
I turned the vacuum filtration to collect the crystals.
In another reaction tube, I dissolved 0.080mg of benzoic acid in the minimum volume of hot methanol; I added drops of water to the hot solution.
After the crystals form and recrystallization begin. I allowed the tube to cool slowly at room temperature, then cool in iced water and gather the crystals.
Then I used the spatula to collect a tip of crystal and allow drying between folds of filter paper which will be used for the melting point.
After I collected both crystals and compared the melting point of the crystals from both procedures.

    Methyl Salicylate has been used for a long time for its pleasant odour and flavour. The objective of this experiment was to carry an organic synthesis; the preparation of salicylic acid from methyl salicylate. To do an organic synthesis, it is needed to chemically modify the molecules of another compound to end up with the desire compound. Methyl salicylate is the major constituent of wintergreen oil, which is why it was used in this experiment as the starting material. The new technique used in this experiment is heating under reflux. Many organic compounds, when heated become volatile and it is easy to lost some. The idea of this technique is to add a vertical condenser to the mixture flask. This will stop the water escaping as it touches the cold surface of the condenser. The condenser has a permanent water flow going in and out and this is why the water drip back to the flask as it touches the cold surface. Vacuum filtration was used isolate the solid from the liquid-solid mixture after the sulphuric acid is qqadded and that the precipitation has occurred and that the pH is down to 2. Recrystallization was then used to purify the salicylic acid formed earlier. Boiling water was used to perform the recrystallization. Melting point helped to characterize organic compound and to assure its purity.…

    Weigh the test tube. Assemble the apparatus of thermometer, split stopper, and stirrer. Measure about eight grams of BHT into the test tube. Record the combined mass, and the mass of the BHT. Clamp the test tube in the beaker and insert the thermometer and stirring wire assembly into the test tube and clamp the assembly to the ring stand. The thermometer should on top of the solid. Add water to the beaker so that the solid is well below the level of the water. Heat the water bath to about 90° Celsius. Allow the BHT in the test tube to melt. When the temperature of the BHT is 80° Celsius or higher, remove the thermometer and test tube from the water bath. The thermometer should maintain position in proportion to the BHT, but the test tube should be out of the water bath beaker. Record the temperature of the BHT every 20 seconds for 30 minutes. Stir the BHT until it solidifies. Measure and record approximately one gram of cetyl alcohol. Place the cetyl alcohol in the test tube containing the BHT. Replace the test tube to the water bath. Heat the test tube until the substances are melted, and reach a temperature over 80° Celsius. Once it exceeds 80° C, remove the test tube from the water bath but maintain the thermometer position in proportion to the mixture. Record the temperature of the BHT every 20 seconds for 30 minutes. Stir the mixture until it solidifies. Repeat the above steps with fresh BHT and, a clean test tube, thermometer,…
