How to achieve correct and reproducible results in titration


Tuesday, 08th March, 2022
10:00 to 11:00 CET (Berlin, Paris, Madrid)


This webinar will show what steps are necessary to achive correct and reproducible titration results. Theoretical background will be combined with practical demos live from the lab.
Topics that will be covered are:

  • General aspects of titration
  • Why is the standardization / titer determination of the titration reagent important
  • What influence does the balance has on my result
  • What needs to be done to check the accuracy of my burette according to DIN EN ISO 8655
  • What maintainence steps are necessary before the titration is started
  • What are my titration parameters and what influence do they have on my titration result
