Introduction to Karl Fischer Titration. This brochure explains the chemical reaction and the two major measuring techniques: Volumetry and coulometry. I also presents a short, historic overview of the development of Karl Fischer’s method.
The Karl Fischer method determines water content specifically and is easily applied to a huge variety of samples. It is a common standard method in R&D, quality control and production monitoring. However, the method requires adequate sample preparation in order to receive correct results.
Part 1: The Techniques
This brochure presents a short, historic overview of the development of Karl Fischer’s method. It explains the chemical reaction and the two major measuring techniques: Volumetric and coulometric.
Part 2: Release the Water
This brochure uses METTLER TOLEDO’s expert knowledge of Karl Fischer titration to explain more advanced sample preparation procedures than the simple sample dissolution in the titration cell.
Part 3: The Right Sample
This brochure explains some important rules and guidelines for drawing samples to determine water content according to Karl Fischer. Our tips and tricks incorporate the experience of METTLER TOLEDO’s application chemists and are well proven through daily practice and application.
Part 4: An Overview
This guide recommends the methods specifically suitable for each sample type and summarizes the various KF titration methods currently in use. The guide is compiled in table form for a fast and easy overview.
