Titrations in Modern Industrial Laboratories

Extracts from this document...


Quality Control for Pharmaceutical Products Producing pharmaceutical products ready for consumer is important because Quality assurance is the sum of all parameters concerning the preparation and control of a finished product. It is a wide term commonly used for the confirmation and validity of various ways and measurements adopted to obtain a high quality procedure for intended use with guaranteed performance. Biological quality control of pharmaceutical products becomes essential and to keep the risks of producing pharmaceutical products as minimum as possible as they are ultimately to be consumed by living organisms, in particular the humans. A standard solution is a solution whose concentration is known accurately. Its concentration is usually given in mol dm-3. When making up a standard solution it is important that the correct mass of substance is accurately measured. It is also important that all of this is successfully transferred to the volumetric flask used to make up the solution. ...read more.


In different industries the process is usually automated thereby eliminating human error, as the answers would be digital and not guessing, however for this there could also be the risk of systematic error, but this is a lot more quicker than the titrating by hand, where the accuracy is at most importance. Automated titration is also used in industry for titrating large amount of volumes. Also, in industry, different industries may also, measure the endpoint differently, as they may use a PH indicator, a potentiometer or a PH meter. However, you cannot always trust the concentration on the bottle, as the concentration should be one number, but then the concentration could be 0.1 out, and this could affect your results overall. This is why you should check the concentration of the iodine, so then the results are accurate. The winemaker industry are moving away from old manual titrations, colour indicators, time consuming aeration oxidation tests and dilution calculations to more accurate, more dependable and faster methods. ...read more.


For example, these may be the various fluids contained within naturally occurring well bore fluids. Thus, an operator may travel with portable titration equipment to a field location whereupon the operator can draw a fluid sample from a well bore or tank at the drilling site and place the sample solution in the source reservoir subject to flow by pump. Titration under control of digital computer may then examine successive portions of sample solution from source reservoir with respective reagents to identify, for example, phosphors, barium, calcium, chlorides, etc. Suitable program control of digital computer will enable such sequential fluid sample examination as the sample with successive reagents is flowed through delivery tube and the ultrasonic mixer to the mixing tube whereupon color detector provides indication output to the digital computer. In some cases where an indicator chemical is required in combination with the particular reagent, the indicator can be added directly into the solution in the reservoirs. ?? ?? ?? ??

    Determining the concentration of acid in a given solution

    5 star(s)

    If there was more sodium carbonate in the flask before I added my known mass, then the concentration would be higher than I calculated. This would mean that more acid would be needed to neutralise it, and I would think that the acid had a lower concentration than it actually did.

  2. Peer reviewed

    Deducing the quantity of acid in a solution

    5 star(s)

    Another procedure error that might have affected our results was the fact that the judge of the endpoint is very ambiguous and relative. How do we know that this colour is effectively the colour that indicates the endpoint?

  1. Dipoles and their importance

    The end of the molecule where the electrons are more concentrated would have a greater negative charge than the other end and instantaneously, the molecule has developed a dipole. An example is Br2, which exists as a diatomic gaseous molecule which can develop at any moment, an instantaneous dipole.

    solution used, volume of iodide I- solution used Pre-Experiment Preparation / Method Designing Using trial and error approach, a pre-experiment exercise was performed to determine the suitable amount of solute and concentration of chemical solutions used. Most notably, the amount of sodium thiosulphate used was adjusted several times to produce a reasonable delay.
