PC 206 /PHR 224 – Analytical Chemistry II

Course lecturer :

  • Dr. Mona Abdel Moneim
  • Dr. Karin Magdi

Course assistant :

  • Ph. Nourhan Al Ashkar
  • T.A. Menna Hadad

Course objectives :

 To build on the content of Analytical Chemistry I (PC 104) by introducing the fundamen-tal aspects of oxidation-reduction titrations.  To give an introduction to electroanalytical methods which utilize potentiometry, con-ductimetry, and similar techniques.

Course description :

  • Oxidation-reduction reactions, electrochemical cells, electrode potentials, potential of electrochemical cells and concentration cells.
  • Theory of oxidation-reduction titrations, equilibrium constants for redox reactions, redox titration curves and oxidation-reduction indicators.
  • Applications of oxidation-reduction titrations, application of standard reductants and standard oxidants.
  • Potentiometric methods, reference electrodes, liquid junction potential, indicator elec-trodes and membrane electrodes.
  • Instruments for measuring cell potentials, direct potentiometric measurements, potenti-ometric titrations and measurement of pH.
  • Conductimetry and conductimetric titrations and similar techniques.
  • The laboratory sessions involve redox titrations using potassium permanganate, potas-sium dichromate, iodine and potassium bromate as well as pH measurement and con-ductimetry.
