The melting point of aspirin : 128-137Celsius degree.

The melting point of the crude aspirin was measured to be 128 Celsius degree. What does it indicate about the purity of the product?

  • Chemistry -

    According to Wikipedia, the melting point of pure aspirin is 135 C. A melting point of 128 indicates it isn't very pure.
