You are using the solubility of this material at 100C which is good to know but when you recrystallize it the temperature is lowered to near freezing (if you are doing it right). So how much would you lose in 3mL of water at 0C?
I would lose 0.0159 at 0C from 0.150g right? (or from 0.165g?)
if I lose 0.0159 then my max percent recovery is [(0.150-0.0159)/0.150]*100=89.4%
