What is Titration?
Titration is the determination of the quantity of a specific substance (analyte) contained in a sample by the controlled addition of a reagent (titrant) of known concentration based on a complete chemical reaction between the substance and the reagent. There are different types of titration used for various laboratory applications.
The titrant is added until the reaction is complete. In order to determine the end of the titration, the reaction has to be monitored (indicated) by an appropriate technique. The measurement of the dispensed titrant volume allows the calculation of the analyte content, based on the stoichiometry of the chemical reaction.
The reaction involved in a titration has to be fast, complete, unambiguous and observable. The classical way of the monitoring of a titration reaction was carried out by the usage of a suitable color indicator, which changes color when the chemical reaction is complete (end of titration). Today, there is the possibility to monitor the reaction and end point by means of an electrochemical sensor.
