Oscillometry and Conductometry deals with oscillometry and conductometry and covers topics ranging from the conductivity and dielectric constant of a solution and their determination, to instruments used in carrying out conductometric and oscillometric measurements. Acid-base titrations and titrations based on precipitation, complex formation, and redox reactions are also discussed. A number of applications of conductometry and oscillometry are considered. This volume is comprised of 18 chapters and begins with an overview of the fundamentals of electrical conductivity, its theoretical interpretation, and how it is affected by temperature. The relation between ionic interaction and conductivity of solutions is also described, with emphasis on the Wien effect and the Debye effect. The theoretical fundamentals of the determination of conductivity using direct and alternating currents are then outlined. Subsequent chapters explore the principles and the devices used in determining dielectric constants; conductometric and oscillometric instruments; the titration of acids and bases; and acid-base titrations in aqueous and non-aqueous media. The final section is devoted to applications of conductometry and oscillometry, including kinetic studies and chromatographic analysis. This monograph will be of interest to analytical chemists.
