This short video provides viewers with an overview and short summary of Analytical Volumetric Solutions, Titrants and Indicators.

The principle of all titrimetry involves the determination of the quantity of the reagent of known concentration the (titrant), that is required to react completely with an unknown analyte. Volumetric titrimetry involves measuring the volume of the solution of known concentration the (titrant) consumed, gravimetric titrimetry measures the mass of the reagent consumed and coulometric titration measures a direct electrical current of known magnitude that consumes the analyte. In coulmetry, the time it takes to complete the electrochemical reaction, is the measurement.

The applications of titration are many and varied. Typical fields of application include surfactants in the cosmetic industry, anionic surfactants in detergents, coolant and lubricants. Also, in environmental measurement, the determination of chloride in water and hydrogen sulphide in desulphurisation processes. Applications in food and beverage include the determination of chloride in many finished products such as cooked meats, dairy products, and ketchup. The determination of silver and silver content in alloys are examples from the precious metal industry. And in the pharmaceutical industry, the benzetonium chloride in drugs, the titration of halides and chloride in physiological/isotonic solutions may be measured. Also, the chloride content in cement and chloride, sulphides and mercaptans in oils.
