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)

    I rinsed the volumetric flask out with distilled water to ensure that it didn't have any sodium carbonate in it already or any other contaminate. This means that I know the exact mass of sodium carbonate in the volumetric flask, so therefore know the exact concentration of the solution.

First rinse with plenty of water, then remove contaminated clothes and rinse again. Refer for medical attention. Contact with eyes Redness. Pain. Safety goggles, or eye protection in combination with breathing protection if powder.

    so we need to divide 250cm3 by 1000 to get 0.25dm3 Number of moles = 0.010 x 0.25 = 0.0025 moles Now that we have worked out the number of moles we can work out the mass of Sodium thiosulphate needed by the following equation: Mass (measured in grams)

  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.

  2. The Effects of Strong and Weak Acids on the Order of a Reaction.

    Number of moles = Mass RMM 0.004 = Mass 24 Therefore, the mass of magnesium that I needed was 0.096g After working out the moles of the Hydrogen gas, I can also work out the volume of the acid required by looking at the mole ratio (2:1)
