Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by hellp on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 11:12pm.

If a solute is very soluble in a solvent (ethanol), why doesn't crystallization occur?

I attempted to recrystallize 14 g of solute A in 30 mL of ethanol, but crystallization didn't occur. Why?

Is it because a) the solution is supersaturated or b) because there is too much solvent? How can I tell which of the two reasons is to blame?
