The main objective of this lab is to properly perform the method recrystallization to purify an impure substance. The recrystallization experiment composed of two parts. The first part consisted of acquiring crude acetanilide, which is an impure substance, and purifying the solid compound through different method. The second part of the experiment required time for the purified acetanilide to recrystallize. The recovered acetanilide was then weighed and its melting point was taken. During the first part of the experiment, about 1.520 grams of crude acetanilide was weighed out. The impure substance had the appearance of a whitish brown solid color. The crude acetanilide was placed into an Erlenmeyer flask containing 25 mL of hot water, and
