Homework Help: o.chem

Posted by Mary on Saturday, May 23, 2009 at 12:47pm.

I did an experiment for extraction of acetylsalicylic acid from an aspirin tablet(632mg mass). The solvent used was dichloromethane. I got about 342mg from the 500mg that could be extracted. the melting point found for this sample was 118-120C as compared to a pure sample's 134-136 C.
since this m.p. is low, does this show that my sample is impure with dichoromethane? or with something else?
