Explanation:

Chloroform and diethyl ether are MISCIBLE solvents....they should be miscible in all concentrations. Often when you recrystallize an organic solute you can use a powerful solvent (i.e. chloroform) layered or mixed with a less powerful solvent, (i.e. diethyl ether or pentane). Of course, when you dispose of the mixed solvent it should go into chlorinated waste.....
