KF Titration – Titer determination 

Water standard for Karl Fischer Titration
Leading reagent manufacturers offer certified water standards for titer determination. We recommend the use of certified standards.

The amount added can simply be determined by back-weighing. For titer determination, a standard solution with the water content 10±0.1 mg/g is available.

Besides standard solutions, water or disodium tartrate dihydrate can also be used for titer determination.
