Redox Titration

Science / Chemistry / Redox Titration: A titration based on a redox reaction. For example, iron in water can be determined by converting dissolved iron to Fe2+ and titrating the solution with potassium permanganate (kmno4), a powerful oxidizing agent.

Redox-Potential Discontinuity

Science / Marine Biology / Redox-Potential Discontinuity: That depth below the sediment-water interface marking the transition from chemically oxidative to reducing processes MORE

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

Titration Curve

Science / Chemistry / Titration Curve: A plot that summarizes data collected in a titration. A linear titration curve plots moles of analyte (or, some quantity proportional to moles of analyte) on the Y axis, and the volume of titrant adde MORE

Redox Reaction

Science / Chemistry / Redox Reaction: A reaction that involves transfer of electrons from one substance to another. Redox reactions always involve a change in oxidation number for at least two elements in the reactants. MORE

Complexometric Titration

Science / Chemistry / Complexometric Titration: A titration based on a reaction between a ligand and a metal ion to form a complex. For example, free Ca2+ in milk powder can be determined by titrating a milk powder sample with EDTA solution, which MORE
