Purifying Benzil

A reaction to convert benzoin to benzil using a Cu+2 catalyzed oxidation didn't go to completion. Purify the benzil.

 

- I was thinking about recrystallizing the benzil, but wasn't sure if that was the best way to purify the benzil and I didn't know what solvent to use.

 

Thanks!
