Applications of Conductometry

Some applications of conductometry are discussed here, conductometry in analytical chemistry is used to measure the progress of chemical reactions. Conductometric titration is carried out in order to measure the  electrical conductivity of the reaction mixture. This type of titration gives a sharp end point for the colored solution.

  • This type of titration is used to check water pollution in lakes as well as rivers.
  • It is also used to check the alkalinity of the fresh water
  • Salinity of the sea water can also be checked by this method.
  • It is also used to trace antibiotics.
  • Used for tracing microorganism in food microbiology
  • To check the solubility of sparingly soluble salts.
  • Purity of distilled water and de ionised water can determined.
