Analyte

Science / Chemistry / Analyte: An analyte is the sample constituent whose concentration is sought in a chemical analysis.

Titration

Science / Chemistry / Titration: A procedure for determining the amount of some unknown substance (the analyte) by quantitative reaction with a measured volume of a solution of precisely known concentration (the titrant). MORE

Titrant

Science / Chemistry / Titrant: The substance that quantitatively reacts with the analyte in a titration. The titrant is usually a standard solution added carefully to the analyte until the reaction is complete. The amount of analyt MORE

Biologic Indicators Of Exposure Study

Health / Disease / Biologic Indicators Of Exposure Study: A study that uses (a) biomedical testing or (b) the measurement of a substance [an analyte], its metabolite, or another marker of exposure in human body fluids or tissues to confirm human exposure to MORE

Colorimetry

Science / Chemistry / Colorimetry: A method for chemical analysis that relates color intensity to the concentration of analyte. MORE

Back Titration

Science / Chemistry / Back Titration: Determining the concentration of an analyte by reacting it with a known number of moles of excess reagent. The excess reagent is then titrated with a second reagent. The concentration of the analyte i MORE

Equivalence Point

Science / Chemistry / Equivalence Point: The equivalence point is the point in a titration when enough titrant has been added to react completely with the analyte. MORE
