Titration Handbook: A guide with helpful practical tips (PDF)

On 192 pages it offers a compact introduction to the theory and practice of titration. The Titration handbook combines application information with the practical laboratory experience of our titration experts. This guide requires chemical knowledge, e.g. the reading of reaction equations, knowledge of important technical terms, basic knowledge of working in the chemical laboratory, as well as the handling of devices such as scales, burettes, pipettes, electrodes and the safety regulations in the laboratory.more

Which electrodes can still be used for titration?

In addition to pH titration, there are a number of other types of titration, such as redox, precipitation and complexometric titration, as well as titrations with polarizable electrodes ("Dead-Stop titrations").more

Which pH electrode do I need for my acid-base titration application?

In an ideal world, there would be only one pH electrode for all their acid-base titrations. In this ideal world, it would not matter whether the solution to be titrated was aqueous or non-aqueous, had a high or low conductivity and whether only a few ml were to be titrated in a small vessel or 250 ml in a 400 ml beaker. One electrode would fit all of these applications.more
