The result of cooling in this manner is that impurities will be removed from the impure benzoic acid resulting in a more purified benzoic acid. The method described above is known as re-crystallization and it is often used to remove impurities from substance by choosing conditions that will favour the re-crystallization of the substance only, thus leaving the impurities behind.
