Difference between coprecipitation and post precipitation

Coprecipitation is a kind of precipitation where soluble compounds in a solution are eliminated during the course of precipitation

Post precipitation is a kind of precipitation where the precipitation of the undesirable compound occurs after the formation of the precipitate of the desired compound.

Difference between coprecipitation and post precipitation is tabulated below

Coprecipitation Post precipitation
Coprecipitation is a kind of precipitation where soluble compounds in a solution are eliminated during the course of precipitation Post precipitation is a kind of precipitation where the precipitation of the undesirable compound occurs after the formation of the precipitate of the desired compound.
The degree of contamination of reaction is high

The degree of contamination is low

It is the precipitation that transpires simultaneously by more than one soluble component in a single solution. It is the precipitation that transpires as a layer upon the already formed precipitate.
