Titer determination in volumetric Karl Fischer titration


This Application contains information regarding titer determination in Karl Fischer titration, in particular regarding the water standard suitable for a titer determination and for the correct handling of the same.

Titer determination for Karl Fischer titrants is indispensable, because the titer is subject to changes caused by the humidity in the air. The frequency of the determination depends on the titrant and the tightness of the system.

The titer has the unit mg/mL in Karl Fischer titration. The value calculated in a titer determination indicates how many milligrams of water react on one milliliter of titrant.
