O- chemistry

posted by .

During a recrystalliztion experiment, a student allows the hot solution to
cool to room temperature, then chills the solution in an ice bath. Is the
student using correct recrystallization technique? Why does the student
not simply chill the hot solution in an ice bath initially?

  • O- chemistry -

    Could cooling the solution suddenly result in a supercooled solution? and no recrystallization would take place (at least not at that time).
