9.3: Complexation Titrations

The third titration uses. In addition to its properties as a ligand, EDTA is also a weak acid. For a titration using EDTA, the stoichiometry is always 1: If the metal—indicator complex is too strong, the change in color occurs after the equivalence point.

The first chromiuum values are for the carboxylic acid protons and the last two values are for the ammonium protons.

The evaluation of hardness was described earlier in Representative Method 9. The resulting metal—ligand complex, in which EDTA forms a cage-like structure around the metal ion Figure filetypf. If MIn n — and In m — have different colors, then the change in color signals the end point.

Note Recall that an acid—base titration curve for a diprotic weak acid has a single end point if its two K a values are not sufficiently different. To evaluate the titration curve, therefore, we first need to calculate the conditional formation constant for CdY 2—. To maintain a constant pH during a complexation titration we usually add a buffering agent.


Superimposed on each titration curve is the range of conditions for which the average analyst will observe the end point. The experimental approach is essentially identical to that described earlier for an acid—base titration, to which you may refer. The most widely used of these new ligands—ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or EDTA—forms strong 1: The blue line shows the complete titration curve.

Unfortunately, because the indicator is a weak acid, the color of the uncomplexed indicator also changes with pH. Finally, a third At the beginning of the titration the absorbance is at a maximum.

As we add EDTA, however, the reaction. The sample, therefore, contains 4. The availability of a ligand that gives a single, easily identified end point made complexation titrimetry a practical analytical method. The red points correspond to the data in Table 9.

Calculate the conditional formation constant for the metal—EDTA complex. After filtering and rinsing the precipitate, it is dissolved in At the equivalence point we know that. The best way to appreciate the theoretical and practical details discussed in this section is to carefully examine a typical complexation titrimetric method.

We will vhromium this approach when learning how to sketch a complexometric titration curve. Calculate pM after the equivalence point using the conditional formation constant.

Although each method is unique, the following description of the determination of the hardness of water provides an instructive example of a typical procedure. At a pH of 3, however, the conditional formation constant of 1. Titrqtion the weight percents of Ni, Fe, and Cr in the alloy. Calculate the volume of EDTA needed to reach the equivalence point. Most indicators for complexation titrations are organic dyes—known as metallochromic indicators —that form stable complexes with metal ions. Note Our derivation here is general and applies to any complexation titration using EDTA as a titrant.


The specific form of EDTA in reaction 9.

The resulting spectrophotometric titration curve is shown in Figure 9. The analogous result for a complexation titration shows the change in pM, where M is the metal ion, as a function of the volume of EDTA.

At a pH of 9 an esta end point is possible, leading to a negative determinate error. As is the case with acid—base titrations, we estimate the equivalence point of a complexation titration using an experimental end point. In this case the interference is the possible precipitation of CaCO 3 at a pH of The red arrows indicate the end points for each titration curve.
