a student dissolves 80 mg of a crude product in 4.5 mL( the minimum required) of methanol at 25 deg C . She cools the solution in an ice bath and obtains crystals. The crystals are recovered by filtration and rinsed with 0.5 mL of ice-cold methanol. After drying, the weight of the crystals is 5 mg. Why was the recovery so poor? what could she do to improve the process?
