 The properties of solvents which make them suitable for crystallization are

  • The compound to be crystallized should be least or sparingly soluble in the solvent at room temperature but highly soluble at high temperature.
  • Solvent should not react chemically with the compound to be purified.
  • Solvent should be volatile so that it can be removed easily.
