Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Natasha on Monday, March 8, 2010 at 10:31pm.

I am reading through material for a recrystallization experiment, and I had a few things I wasn't sure about;
- Why once filtered, should the recrystallization solution be allowed to cool slowly, undisturbed, rather than quickly?

and

-What makes a good solvent, i.e. what are the characteristics of a good solvent for recrystallization???


for the first ques, i think it that step should be done because it allows the crystals to form properly. ANy help appreciated.
