This method is first used in the determination of dyes.

There are mainly three types of cells used as conductivity cells: This contribution in case of a strong acid-strong base is negligible and is not considered there. When compared to the acid—base titrations, precipitate titrations are not that much accurate because of the more number of the interferences.

The conductivity is inversely proportional to the size of the ions. Negative charge of the ions increases the conductivity where as the positively charged ions decreases the conductivity. The sample solution is placed on the cell which is composed of platinum electrodes.

Used in the determination of the basicity of the acids. Size of the ions: Less satisfactory when compared to other methods.


Conductometry – Wikipedia

Hence the non-aqueous titrimetric method is used. Weak acid with a strong base: The conductance is defined as the reciprocal of the resistance.

The titration curve can be used to graphically determine the equivalence point.

Kalcher, “History of Electroanalytical Methods”. The reaction mechanism was first proposed by Peter Griessin.

The solutions are compulsory diluted for the measurements. Conductive measurements began as early as the 18th century, when Andreas Baumgartner noticed that salt and mineral waters from Bad Inztrumentation in Austria conducted electricity.

The conductance is decreased with the increase in the concentration. The main principle involved in this method is that the movement of the ions creates the electrical conductivity. Instrumentatiion this method, the two end points are observed.

Then the conductivity of the solution is measured by the following equation: Conductometry has notable application in analytical chemistrywhere conductometric titration is a standard technique.

After completion of the reaction, the excess addition of the NaOH shows the increase in the conductivity. The main principle …. Conductometric titration is a type of titration in which the electrolytic conductivity of the reaction mixture is continuously monitored as one reactant is added.


Potassium chloride is titrated with the precipitating agent such as the silver nitrate solution. For each amount of NaOH added equivalent amount of hydrogen ions is removed. The number of ions present in the solution is directly proportional to the conductance. This minimum can be used, instead of an indicator dye, to determine conductometrg endpoint of the titration. Then conductivity increases slightly up to the equivalence point volume, due to contribution of the salt cation and anion.


Number ions present in the sample solution: Then the plot between the conductivity and the volume of the titrant shows the plateau. Initially the plot shows the decrease in the conductivity and then shows the increase in the conductivity. These are extremely weak and cannot be analysed using normal titrimetric clnductometry. These are carried out as same as the acid—base titrations by using non-aqueous solvents. Strong acid with weak base: First is the formation of the metal ion and the second one is the formation of the complex.
