Which statements are FALSE about selecting a solvent for recrystallization?
(Select all correct answers.)

Any solvent can be used for recrystallization as long as the compound dissolves in it.
The compound should exhibit a high solubility in the solvent at high temperature.
The compound should exhibit a fairly high solubility in the solvent at low temperature.
The compound should dissolve better in the chosen solvent than the impurity at low temperature.
The compound should exhibit a relatively steep solubility curve in the chosen solvent.
