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 analyte is calculated from the volume of titrant required for complete reaction.


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

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
