                                                                 TITRIMETRIC ANALYSIS

 You are already aware that a substance is analysed to establish its qualitative and quantitative chemical composition. Thus, chemical analysis can be categorised as qualitative analysis and quantitative analysis. In this unit you will learn about determination of the amount of substance in solution. Depending upon the method adopted for determining the amount of chemical substances in solution, there are two methods of analysis namely, titrimetric analysis and gravimetric analysis. In titrimetric analysis measurement of only volumes is involved while in gravimetric analysis measurement of volumes as well as mass is involved. Titrimetric analysis involves determination of the volume of a solution of accurately known concentration, which is required to react quantitatively with the measured volume of the solution of a substance, concentration of which is to be determined. The solution of accurately known concentration is called standard solution. The mass of the substance dissolved in the solution of unknown concentration is calculated from the volume of the standard solution used, the chemical equation and the relative molecular masses of the reacting compounds. The reagent of known concentration is called titrant and the substance being titrated is termed as titrand. To carry out titrimetric analysis, standard solution is usually added from the long graduated tube called burette. The process of adding the standard solution to the solution of unknown concentration until the reaction is just complete is called titration. The point at which reaction is completed is called equivalence point or the theoretical or stoichiometric end point. It is not possible all the time to take standard solution in the burette. You will come to know about it later in this unit in the titration of sodium hydroxide with oxalic acid.

 6.1 DETECTION OF END POINT

The end point is detected either by some physical change produced in the reaction mixture itself or by the addition of an auxiliary reagent, known as indicator; alternatively some other physical measurement may be used. At the completion of the reaction, the indicator shows a visible change e.g. (colour change or turbidity) in the solution being titrated. In an ideal titration, the visible end point coincides with the stoichiometric or theoretical end point; but in practice usually some small difference occurs. This represents titration error. Indicator and the experimental conditions selected should be such that the difference between the visible end point and the theoretical end point is minimum.
