Iodometry, also known as iodometric titration, is a method of volumetric chemical analysis, involves indirect titration of iodine liberated by reaction with the analyte, whereas iodimetry involves direct titration using iodine as the titrant. What is the Difference Between Iodometry and Iodimetry? In Iodometry two redox reactions occur. In Iodimetry, only one redox reaction process.

In our case, the analyte is the substance that is being quantified. In the presence of iodine, the thiosulphate ions oxidise quantitatively to the tetrathionate ions. Do you remember in which titrations the titrant is in the Erlenmeyer flask? Instrumental Chemical Analysis Determining the concentration of these chemicals is important because hydroperoxides have a negative effect on the acceptability of the fat matrix used, and on the food fried in it, and they also decompose easily, annd molecules which are dangerous for human health.

The standard solution is Idometry I2 On the other hand in iodometric titrations: Iodometry is the quantitative analysis of a solution of an oxidizing agent by adding an iodide that reacts to form iodine, which is then titrated whereas iodimetry is a volumetric analysis involving either titration with a standardized solution of iodine, or the release by a substance under examination of iodine in soluble form, so that we can determine its concentration by titration. Some reactions involving certain reductants are reversible at certain pH, thus the pH of the sample solution should be carefully adjusted before the performing the analysis.

Difference Between Iodometry and Iodimetry l Iodometry vs Iodimetry

Sodium thiosulphate needs a neutral or weak acid environment to oxidise with tetrathionate in an alkaline solution we would get sulphate oxidation ; 3.


This page was last edited on 9 Septemberat Application of iodometry One interesting application of iodometry in iodomerty food industry is for determining sulphur dioxide SO 2 in wine. Consequently, in the first reaction The analyte reacts with an excess of iodur to generate iode. Treatment of experimental data.

This makes analysis of hexacyanoferrate III troublesome as the iodide and thiosulfate decomposes in strongly acidic medium.

Exactly, the four types are acid-base, complexometric, precipitation and redox. Feedback Privacy Policy Feedback. Licensed under Public Domain via Commons. Sodium thisoufate Slide 8: Introduction to iodometric and iodimetric titrations In this lesson: The half-reaction is as follows: Now, in order to be able to quantify the analyte, we need the analyte to react with a substance of a known concentration.

The triiodide ion solution is then titrated against standard thiosulfate solution to give iodide again using starch indicator:.

Difference Between Iodometry and Iodimetry

Carrying out the titration 1 Erlenmeyer flask, source: When this reaction takes place, iodide we add iodide in the form of KI oxidizes to iodine and the other species will undergo reduction by iodide. Once the bond between the iodine I 2 and the helical chain of beta-amylose is formed it turns an intense blue. Not a direct titration because there are 2 reactions: They differ in their approach.

However, it is more common to use Iodometric methods for analysis rather than Iodimetric methods. Iodometric titration needs to be done in a weak acid environment which is why we need to remember that:. Important considerations Iodometric titration needs to be done in a weak acid environment which is why we need to remember that: What is Iodometry 3.

The total sulphur dioxide in the wine sample is determined through direct iodimetric titration using starch as the indicator. Iodometric titration of copper Sample: Principles of method Hydroperoxides in the presence of KI reduce as shown in the redox reaction below.


Istituto Magistrale “Leonardo da Vinci” di Alba. Examples include the determination of copper IIchlorateHydrogen peroxideand dissolved oxygen:.

The substance of a known concentration is called the titrant.

The addition of an excess of Iodomegry 2 makes the solution turn dark blue indicating that all the sulphur dioxide in the sample has been titrated. Iodometryalso known as iodometric titrationis a method of volumetric chemical analysisa redox titration where the appearance or disappearance of elementary iodine indicates the end point.

The key difference between iodomefry and iodimetry is that we can use Iodometry to quantify oxidizing agents, whereas we can use iodimetry to quantify reducing agents.

Introduction to iodometric and iodimetric titrations a A reducing analyte b One reaction c Standard solution: In this case the analyte is an oxidizing agent. The Color Change in Iodometry.

The precipitation occurs in slightly acidic medium, thus avoids the problem of decomposition of iodide and thiosulfate in strongly acidic medium, and the hexacyanoferrate III can be determined by iodometry as usual.

In this method, excess but known amount of iodide is added to known volume of sample, in which only the active electrophilic can oxidize iodide to iodine. Iodometry in its many variations is extremely useful in volumetric analysis. Titrations are one of the two types of Classical Quantitative Analysis.

In IodometryIodine gets oxidized first and then reduced by a reducing agent. When iodide is added to a solution of hexacyanoferrate IIIthe following equilibrium exists:. With iodine and starch in the mixture, it iodpmetry appear in dark-blue colour, but at the end point when all the iodine is finished, the dark colour will disappear.
