Course Description
Titration is a widely used technique and provides vital information for quality control, concentration analysis, process control and final product testing in a variety of industries. Take a practical look at titration method development for potentiometric, colorimetric, thermometric and Karl Fischer titrations in this short course. Case studies from various industries will be used to introduce basic and intermediate method development. Topics including electrode selection, troubleshooting and parameter optimization will be covered using examples from chemical, polymer, environmental, pharmaceutical, petrochemical and food and beverage industries.

Target Audience
Practical approaches are discussed to address challenges and achieve optimal parameters for titration applications. This course is ideal for lab chemists, quality control personnel, analytical chemists involved in method development and validation and managers interested in an in-depth understanding of titration applications and optimization.

Course Outline
Titration is integral to most industries and can involve wide variations in sample types. Consistently attaining accurate and precise results is very important and can be challenging without having an in-depth understanding of the core principles of titration and their optimization. The principles and concepts covered in this course will provide attendees with the ability to optimize existing titration, apply new approaches where needed and consistently provide titration data that is accurate and precise.
