Homework Help: organic chemistry

Posted by Tammy on Monday, October 4, 2010 at 1:32am.

The isolation process of aspirin was stopped after the filtration step with alumina and one week later the methanol was evaporated and the experiment was completed. The melting point of the aspirin was found to be 110-115 Celsius. explain why the meltingpoint was low and why the melting range was so wide.
can you please help
also if the process would be completed on time what are the reasons that the % of recovery is less than 100% ?
