Filtration-Ice cold solvent

  1. Feb 7, 2010 #1
    Hi I was just wondering why we use ice cold solvent when performing a filtration before vacum filtration? What exactly does it do? Like ice cold alcohol? I know it allows filtration to be more efficient, but how exactly?

    Look into the solubility of your product in the filtration solvent at different temperatures...
