If a homogenous aqueous solution is frozen and then thawed at room temp, will the very first liquid that is thawed have the same composition as the very last? Or does the whole sample need to thaw in order to insure that any amount of liquid taken from the total solution is going to be of the same composition as the original solution? I am talking mostly of ions in the 10-150 millimolar range. Does it matter if it is a solution of sugars or proteins or other non-ionic molecules?
Re: A homogenous aqueous solution is frozen. Does it all melt 'evenly'?
