If the solubility of adipic acid at 0°C is 0.80 g per 100 g water, and the total yield of adipic acid obtained from the oxidation of a sample of cyclohexene amounted to only 0.87 g. What is the maximum volume of water that should be used to recrystallize the sample and recover 0.80 g of pure product?
