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).

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

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

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 oxid 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


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


Science / Chemistry / Endpoint: The experimental estimate of the equivalence point in a titration. MORE
