You isolate an acidic compound in an experiment by first separating it from the organic layer. Then you have a solution containing a salt of an acid. You acidify it using concentrated HCl. A precipitation begins to form while the solution is still basic.. why? You continue the precipitation by submerging the solution in an ice bath. The precipitated acid is then rinsed with deionized water, and dried using suction filtration. What could be done to this method to improve the yield?
