What would have happened if we had forgotten to neutralize the aqueous solution before recrystallization?

  • Organic Chemistry -

    good luck

    You need to put more detail Aqueous solution of what?

    If you don't neutralize the aqueous solution, then the acid crystals will not reform. The basic aqueous solution contains the conjugate base of the acid. you need to reprotonate this in order to get the crystals. Hope this helps...if you are in Thursday Lab at UCI with Kim...Me too!
