So a crystallization experiment was performed using an impure sample of biphenly, it weights 0.5g and contains about 5% impurity. Benzene is used as the solvent but after crystallization only about 0.02g were found. If everything was performed correctly, there are no spills, and very little solid was lost why is the recovery so low?
