Moisture Titration

Home > Analytical Instrument > Moisture Titration

Moisture Titrations are used to determine or detect the amount of water present in a specimen. It was invented by German chemist Karl Fischer in the year 1935. Often referred to as Karl Fischer titration for its pre-eminence to Karl Fisher, the moisture titration is a classic titration method in analytical chemistry that uses coulometric or volumetric titration to find out water molecules in a sample.

The method propounded by Karl Fisher is the principal technique of determining the moisture content in samples. The determination of total moisture by this method is based on the concentration of iodine in the Karl Fisher titrating reagent and the amount of reagent consumed in the titration.
