Recrystallization: Filter your crystals and measure the melting point Virtual Lab
How can we separate liquids from solids? How can we determine the purity of that solid? In this simulation you will learn how to use the suction filtration and melting point techniques that will allow you to answer both questions.

About This Simulation
This mini-simulation is part of the larger “Recrystallization: Purify your solid.” See the full version for more information.
How can we separate a solid from a liquid and determine its purity?
In this simulation, you will learn all the steps necessary to separate a solid from a liquid and then determine the purity of that solid.
Filtrate and determine the melting point
Filtrate a solid to separate it from a liquid. Once done, you will be able to determine the solid’s melting point range, which will allow you to determine its purity.
Fast, painless, and repeatable melting points!
The melting point technique uses the reagent in the process, meaning you could run out in a normal laboratory experiment. Luckily, in this virtual simulation you’ll be able to repeat the process as many times as you need—no need to worry about the amount of reagent left!
Understand the big picture and master the individual steps
In this lab, you will be able to understand what we’re trying to achieve from the very beginning. You’ll also have a very detailed protocol to follow, including support images, to help make your experience smooth.

Integrate with your LMS
Labster integrates with all major LMS (Learning Management Systems) so that educators can use their gradebooks to track students’ performance data and students can keep a record of their work. Labster is compatible with Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, Google Classroom, Schoology, Sakai, and Brightspace / D2L. It’s also possible to use Labster without an LMS.
