Applied Complexometry tackles complexometry from a practical perspective. The book discusses more applications, and theories are reduced to the most important ones. Comprised of 22 chapters, this book deals first with volumetric reagents in complexometry, and then tackles detection of the titration end-point. Chapter 3 covers masking (screening) reagents. Chapter 4 discusses separation methods, and Chapter 5 covers apparatus and solutions. Chapter 6 talks about the classification of EDTA complexes, while Chapter 7 discusses the complexometry anions. Chapter 8 discusses the analytical applications; Chapters 9 to 21 explain the analysis of several materials and solutions, such as alloys, silicates and rocks, cement, ores and concentrates, semiconductors, pigments, and electroplating solutions. The last chapter discusses further applications of complexometry. This book will be of great interest to researchers, especially for chemists whose work involves various chemical techniques such as complexometry.
