Thermometric analysis of aluminum by back-titration – Fast and robust technique for aluminum determination

This Application Note describes the determination of aluminum in samples containing silicon dioxide using thermometric titration and EDTA as the titrant. Excess EDTA is titrated with a Cu2+ solution of known concentration. The initial, uncomplexed Cu2+ ions react immediately with the H2O2 present in the solution, leading to a recognizable sudden increase in temperature.
