Automatic determination of tin using photometric titration

Main document

Tin with EDTA forms very stable complexes in its divalent and tetravalent forms. Hydroxo complexes form in alkali media, which is also why tin is titrated in an acidic medium (pH 2.1). Xylenol orange is used as the indicator. The equivalence point is determined with the Optrode at a wavelength of 574 nm.
