I. Objectives
To recrystallize benzoic acid in distilled water
To determine the melting point to examine the purity of recrystallized benzoic acid
II. Schematic Diagram of Procedure
A. Recrystallization
0.25 g tech grade benzoicacid in 25 mL Erlenmayerflask 
+7 mL water and boil for
1-2 mins while stirringdissolve all remainingsolids by adding boilingwater
+pinch of charcoal and
 gently heat to boilingfilter sol'n through flutedfilter paper into anotherErlenmayer flask with 3mL hot water
collect recrystallized
benzoic acid by filtrationwash crystals withminimum amount of coldwaterspread filter paper on awatch glass and allow toair dry 
transport crystals to
previously weighed vialreport weight of crystals
and % recovery
