TITRIMETRY I: ACID–BASE
TITRATIONS
Pages 5

The technique of volumetric analysis is the simplest type of titrimetry, and involves the addition of controlled volumes of a reagent solution, the titrant, to a known volume of another solution, the titrand in a volumetric titration. This procedure may be automated, and the changes detected instrumentally (Topics C2, C3, C9 and C10). In some cases, excess of a reagent is added and the excess measured by back titration.
