  • In samples from the Vostok ice core, almost three miles down, Christner isolated a bacterium that produces a protein that may well help the organism to survive, in part by altering the freezing and recrystallizing of the nearby ice—directing the potentially destructive processes away from the organism.

  • There are two ways to make refinery brown sugars: redissolving the raw sugar in a syrup of some kind and then recrystallizing it, so that it retains some of the syrup on its crystal surfaces; or refining the raw sugar all the way to pure white sugar, and then coating or “painting” its surfaces with a thin film of syrup or molasses.

  • By recrystallizing the gold salt six times from boiling water, the salt of hyoscyamine, which melts at from 316° F. to 323° F., crystallizes our first, and by the successive evaporation of the mother liquor at last obtain the pure gold salt of atropine, which melts at 275° F. to 280° F.

  • The best way of purifying the alkaloid is by recrystallizing its gold salt several times, so as to obtain it in brilliant yellow plates, melting at 320° F.

  • Thus was gradually produced the formation of mica-schist, the mica imperfectly recrystallizing or being merely aggregated together in horizontal plates, between which the quartz either spread itself generally in minute grains or unified into crystalline nuclei.
