Advantages and disadvantages of conductometric evaluation
Conductometric titration is used to determine the electrical conductivity of the solution. This process will calculate the concentration of the sample by adding titrant until the end point is reached. It is observed by measuring the conductance of the solution. Conductometric titrations are used in analytical chemistry to measure the progress of chemical reactions.
The advantages of conductometric titration are as follows.
- Compared to other titration methods, conductometric endpoint titration is much faster and more accurate.
- Very dilute solutions and weak acids can be used in this titration.
- It is used with (cloudy/colored) solutions not visible to the naked eye.
- If no suitable indicator is available in the titration, a conductometric titration can be used.
- Conductometric titration provides a more accurate endpoint.
- It is applied in acid-base titration, precipitation and redox.
The disadvantages of conductometric titration are as follows.
- It is not possible to measure high concentrations with this method.
- This is less accurate when total electrolyte concentrations are higher.
- A sample solution must be diluted for measurement.
- Salt levels can change the conductivity of the solution.
