\[K_\textrm f''=\dfrac{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}{C_\textrm{Cd}C_\textrm{EDTA}}=\dfrac{3.33\times10^{-3}-x}{(x)(x)}= 9.5\times10^{14}\], \[x=C_\textrm{Cd}=1.9\times10^{-9}\textrm{ M}\]. In this case the interference is the possible precipitation of CaCO3 at a pH of 10. Calmagite is a useful indicator because it gives a distinct end point when titrating Mg2+. A spectrophotometric titration is a particularly useful approach for analyzing a mixture of analytes. At a pH of 3, however, the conditional formation constant of 1.23 is so small that very little Ca2+ reacts with the EDTA. Formation constants for other metal–EDTA complexes are found in Table E4. When the titration is complete, we adjust the titrand’s pH to 9 and titrate the Ca2+ with EDTA. The specific form of EDTA in reaction 9.9 is the predominate species only at pH levels greater than 10.17. In the later case, Ag+ or Hg2+ are suitable titrants. Titration 2: moles Ni + moles Fe = moles EDTA, Titration 3: moles Ni + moles Fe + moles Cr + moles Cu = moles EDTA, We can use the first titration to determine the moles of Ni in our 50.00-mL portion of the dissolved alloy. Conditions to the right of the dashed line, where Mg2+ precipitates as Mg(OH)2, are not analytically useful for a complexation titration. Next, we draw a straight line through each pair of points, extending the line through the vertical line representing the equivalence point’s volume (Figure 9.29d). We begin by calculating the titration’s equivalence point volume, which, as we determined earlier, is 25.0 mL. The sample is acidified to a pH of 2.3–3.8 and diphenylcarbazone, which forms a colored complex with excess Hg2+, serves as the indicator. Before adding EDTA, the mass balance on Cd2+, CCd, is, and the fraction of uncomplexed Cd2+, αCd2+, is, \[\alpha_{\textrm{Cd}^{2+}}=\dfrac{[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}]}{C_\textrm{Cd}}\tag{9.13}\]. If one of the buffer’s components is a ligand that binds Cd2+, then EDTA must compete with the ligand for Cd2+. For example, after adding 30.0 mL of EDTA, \[\begin{align} The formation constant for CdY2– in equation 9.10 assumes that EDTA is present as Y4–. 2. Complexation titrimetry continues to be listed as a standard method for the determination of hardness, Ca2+, CN–, and Cl– in waters and wastewaters. 16 Note that after the equivalence point, the titrand’s solution is a metal–ligand complexation buffer, with pCd determined by CEDTA and [CdY2–]. As we add EDTA it reacts first with free metal ions, and then displaces the indicator from MInn–. Figure 9.29 Illustrations showing the steps in sketching an approximate titration curve for the titration of 50.0 mL of 5.00 × 10–3 M Cd2+ with 0.0100 M EDTA in the presence of 0.0100 M NH3: (a) locating the equivalence point volume; (b) plotting two points before the equivalence point; (c) plotting two points after the equivalence point; (d) preliminary approximation of titration curve using straight-lines; (e) final approximation of titration curve using a smooth curve; (f) comparison of approximate titration curve (solid black line) and exact titration curve (dashed red line). leaving 4.58×10–4 mol of EDTA to react with Cr. Because the reaction’s formation constant, \[K_\textrm f=\dfrac{[\textrm{CdY}^{2-}]}{[\textrm{Cd}^{2+}][\textrm{Y}^{4-}]}=2.9\times10^{16}\tag{9.10}\]. After the equilibrium point we know the equilibrium concentrations of CdY2- and EDTA. To use equation 9.10, we need to rewrite it in terms of CEDTA. Adding a small amount of Mg2+–EDTA to the buffer ensures that the titrand includes at least some Mg2+. Sketch titration curves for the titration of 50.0 mL of 5.00×10–3 M Cd2+ with 0.0100 M EDTA (a) at a pH of 10 and (b) at a pH of 7. 1.

Titration | In chapter 9.2 we learned that an acid–base titration curve shows how the titrand’s pH changes as we add titrant. Buffer solutions resist the change in pH. Complexometric titration is a form of volumetric titration in which the formation of a colored complex is used to indicate the end point of a titration. Table 9.13 and Figure 9.28 show additional results for this titration. At a pH of 3 the CaY2– complex is too weak to successfully titrate. If at least one species in a complexation titration absorbs electromagnetic radiation, we can identify the end point by monitoring the titrand’s absorbance at a carefully selected wavelength. A titration of Ca2+ at a pH of 9 gives a distinct break in the titration curve because the conditional formation constant for CaY2– of 2.6 × 109 is large enough to ensure that the reaction of Ca2+ and EDTA goes to completion. 9.3.2 Complexometric EDTA Titration Curves. Complexometric titrations are titrations that can be used to discover the hardness of water or to discover metal ions in a solution. To do so we need to know the shape of a complexometric titration curve. To evaluate the titration curve, therefore, we first need to calculate the conditional formation constant for CdY2–. The calculations are straightforward, as we saw earlier. (Note that in this example, the analyte is the titrant. The selectivity afforded by masking, demasking and pH control allows individual components of complex mixtures of metal ions to be analyzed by EDTA titration. [\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]&=\dfrac{\textrm{initial moles Cd}^{2+}}{\textrm{total volume}}=\dfrac{M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}}{V_\textrm{Cd}+V_\textrm{EDTA}}\\ This method, called a complexometric titration, is used to find the calcium content of milk, the ‘hardness’ of water and the amount of calcium carbonate in various solid materials. Here the concentration of Cd2+ is controlled by the dissociation of the Cd2+–EDTA complex. Neither titration includes an auxiliary complexing agent. These titrations are performed at a basic pH, where the formation constants of Ca-EDTA and Mg-EDTA complexes are high. In this section we will learn how to calculate a titration curve using the equilibrium calculations from Chapter 6. Step 4: Calculate pM at the equivalence point using the conditional formation constant. This leaves 5.42×10–4 mol of EDTA to react with Fe; thus, the sample contains 5.42×10–4 mol of Fe. This displacement is stoichiometric, so the total concentration of hardness cations remains unchanged. Solutions of EDTA are prepared from its soluble disodium salt, Na2H2Y•2H2O and standardized by titrating against a solution made from the primary standard CaCO3. We saw that an acid–base titration curve shows the change in pH following the addition of titrant. The range of pMg and volume of EDTA over which the indicator changes color is shown for each titration curve. The reason we can use pH to provide selectivity is shown in Figure 9.34a. If the metal–indicator complex is too weak, however, the end point occurs before we reach the equivalence point. See Chapter 11 for more details about ion selective electrodes. The concentration of Cd2+, therefore, is determined by the dissociation of the CdY2– complex. After adding calmagite as an indicator, the solution was titrated with the EDTA, requiring 42.63 mL to reach the end point. Add 6 drops of indicator and 3 mL of buffer solution. Complexometric titration » EDTA. The availability of a ligand that gives a single, easily identified end point made complexation titrimetry a practical analytical method. Hardness of water is determined by titrating with a standard solution of ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) which is a complexing agent. A 50.00-mL aliquot of the sample, treated with pyrophosphate to mask the Fe and Cr, required 26.14 mL of 0.05831 M EDTA to reach the murexide end point. To indicate the equivalence point’s volume, we draw a vertical line corresponding to 25.0 mL of EDTA. EDTA, which is shown in Figure 9.26a in its fully deprotonated form, is a Lewis acid with six binding sites—four negatively charged carboxylate groups and two tertiary amino groups—that can donate six pairs of electrons to a metal ion. A variety of methods are available for locating the end point, including indicators and sensors that respond to a change in the solution conditions. This is the same example that we used in developing the calculations for a complexation titration curve. EDTA. Compare your sketches to the calculated titration curves from Practice Exercise 9.12. As shown in Table 9.11, the conditional formation constant for CdY2– becomes smaller and the complex becomes less stable at more acidic pHs. Calmagite is used as an indicator. The estimation of hardness is based on complexometric titration. Finally, a third 50.00-mL aliquot was treated with 50.00 mL of 0.05831 M EDTA, and back titrated to the murexide end point with 6.21 mL of 0.06316 M Cu2+. It reacts directly with Mg, Ca, Zn, Cd, Pb, Cu, Ni, Co, Fe, Bi, Th, Zr and others. The most widely used of these new ligands—ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or EDTA—forms strong 1:1 complexes with many metal ions. ), The primary standard of Ca2+ has a concentration of, \[\dfrac{0.4071\textrm{ g CaCO}_3}{\textrm{0.5000 L}}\times\dfrac{\textrm{1 mol Ca}^{2+}}{100.09\textrm{ g CaCO}_3}=8.135\times10^{-3}\textrm{ M Ca}^{2+}\], \[8.135\times10^{-3}\textrm{ M Ca}^{2+}\times0.05000\textrm{ L Ca}^{2+} = 4.068\times10^{-4}\textrm{ mol Ca}^{2+}\], which means that 4.068×10–4 moles of EDTA are used in the titration. Our derivation here is general and applies to any complexation titration using EDTA as a titrant. The accuracy of an indicator’s end point depends on the strength of the metal–indicator complex relative to that of the metal–EDTA complex. A 0.7176-g sample of the alloy was dissolved in HNO3 and diluted to 250 mL in a volumetric flask. Correcting the absorbance for the titrand’s dilution ensures that the spectrophotometric titration curve consists of linear segments that we can extrapolate to find the end point. EDTA. For more information contact us at info@libretexts.org or check out our status page at https://status.libretexts.org. Step 3: Calculate pM values before the equivalence point by determining the concentration of unreacted metal ions. The actual number of coordination sites depends on the size of the metal ion, however, all metal–EDTA complexes have a 1:1 stoichiometry. and pCd is 9.77 at the equivalence point. EDTA se combine avec les ions métalliques dans un rapport 1:1 1) EDTA4− forme des chélates avec “tous les cations” métalliques. a pCd of 15.32. Thus, when the titration reaches 110% of the equivalence point volume, pCd is logKf´ – 1. Complexometric Titrations. In 1945, Schwarzenbach introduced aminocarboxylic acids as multidentate ligands. The end point is determined using p-dimethylaminobenzalrhodamine as an indicator, with the solution turning from a yellow to a salmon color in the presence of excess Ag+. At the equivalence point we know that, \[M_\textrm{EDTA}\times V_\textrm{EDTA}=M_\textrm{Cd}\times V_\textrm{Cd}\], Substituting in known values, we find that it requires, \[V_\textrm{eq}=V_\textrm{EDTA}=\dfrac{M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}}{M_\textrm{EDTA}}=\dfrac{(5.00\times10^{-3}\;\textrm M)(\textrm{50.0 mL})}{\textrm{0.0100 M}}=\textrm{25.0 mL}\]. This is our group assignment. Because the color of calmagite’s metal–indicator complex is red, its use as a metallochromic indicator has a practical pH range of approximately 8.5–11 where the uncomplexed indicator, HIn2–, has a blue color. Hardness is reported as mg CaCO3/L. See the text for additional details. To do so we need to know the shape of a complexometric EDTA titration curve. which means the sample contains 1.524×10–3 mol Ni. (b) Diagram showing the relationship between the concentration of Mg2+ (as pMg) and the indicator’s color. It uses a molecule known as EDTA, Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, shown in Figure 1: Record the titration volumes. \end{align}\]. Our goal is to sketch the titration curve quickly, using as few calculations as possible. In this titration standard EDTA solution is added to given sample containing metals using burette till the end point is achieved. As is the case with acid–base titrations, we estimate the equivalence point of a complexation titration using an experimental end point. Since EDTA is insoluble in water, the disodium salt of EDTA is taken for this experiment. Liebig’s titration of CN– with Ag+ was successful because they form a single, stable complex of Ag(CN)2–, giving a single, easily identified end point. The determination of these two elements by classical procedures (i.e. To do so we need to know the shape of a complexometric EDTA titration curve. Figure 9.29b shows the pCd after adding 5.00 mL and 10.0 mL of EDTA. EDTA Titrations: An Introduction to Theory and Practice, Second Edition considers the theoretical background, full procedural details, and some practical applications of EDTA titrations. Contrast this with αY4-, which depends on pH. The equivalence point of a complexation titration occurs when we react stoichiometrically equivalent amounts of titrand and titrant. Beginning with the conditional formation constant, \[K_\textrm f'=\dfrac{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}{[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}]C_\textrm{EDTA}}=\alpha_\mathrm{Y^{4-}} \times K_\textrm f = (0.37)(2.9\times10^{16})=1.1\times10^{16}\], we take the log of each side and rearrange, arriving at, \[\log K_\textrm f'=-\log[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}]+\log\dfrac{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}{C_\textrm{EDTA}}\], \[\textrm{pCd}=\log K_\textrm f'+\log\dfrac{C_\textrm{EDTA}}{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}\]. At a pH of 3 EDTA reacts only with Ni2+. The solid lines are equivalent to a step on a conventional ladder diagram, indicating conditions where two (or three) species are equal in concentration. APCH Chemical Analysis. &=6.25\times10^{-4}\textrm{ M} The indicator, Inm–, is added to the titrand’s solution where it forms a stable complex with the metal ion, MInn–. Note that the titration curve’s y-axis is not the actual absorbance, A, but a corrected absorbance, Acorr, \[A_\textrm{corr}=A\times\dfrac{V_\textrm{EDTA}+V_\textrm{Cu}}{V_\textrm{Cu}}\]. Because we use the same conditional formation constant, Kf´´, for all calculations, this is the approach shown here. Using back titration it is also possible to determine some anions - for example SO42- can be determined by BaSO4 precipitation with the use of BaCl2 and titration of excess barium left in the solution. https://chem.libretexts.org/@app/auth/3/login?returnto=https%3A%2F%2Fchem.libretexts.org%2FCourses%2FNortheastern_University%2F09%253A_Titrimetric_Methods%2F9.3%253A_Complexation_Titrations, \[C_\textrm{Cd}=[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}]+[\mathrm{Cd(NH_3)^{2+}}]+[\mathrm{Cd(NH_3)_2^{2+}}]+[\mathrm{Cd(NH_3)_3^{2+}}]+[\mathrm{Cd(NH_3)_4^{2+}}]\], Conditional Metal–Ligand Formation Constants, 9.3.2 Complexometric EDTA Titration Curves, 9.3.3 Selecting and Evaluating the End point, Finding the End point by Monitoring Absorbance, Selection and Standardization of Titrants, 9.3.5 Evaluation of Complexation Titrimetry, information contact us at info@libretexts.org, status page at https://status.libretexts.org. The buffer is at its lower limit of pCd = logKf´ – 1 when, \[\dfrac{C_\textrm{EDTA}}{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}=\dfrac{\textrm{moles EDTA added} - \textrm{initial moles }\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}}{\textrm{initial moles }\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}}=\dfrac{1}{10}\], Making appropriate substitutions and solving, we find that, \[\dfrac{M_\textrm{EDTA}V_\textrm{EDTA}-M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}}{M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}}=\dfrac{1}{10}\], \[M_\textrm{EDTA}V_\textrm{EDTA}-M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}=0.1 \times M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}\], \[V_\textrm{EDTA}=\dfrac{1.1 \times M_\textrm{Cd}V_\textrm{Cd}}{M_\textrm{EDTA}}=1.1\times V_\textrm{eq}\]. The sample, therefore, contains 4.58×10–4 mol of Cr. When the titration is complete, raising the pH to 9 allows for the titration of Ca2+. Complexometric titration (sometimes chelatometry) is a form of volumetric analysis in which the In practice, the use of EDTA as a titrant is well established . EDTA Complexometric Titration EDTA called as ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid is a complexometric indicator consisting of 2 amino groups and four carboxyl groups called as Lewis bases. What problems might you expect at a higher pH or a lower pH? Engineering Chemistry Lab ( Rajasthan Technical University) Table 9.14 provides examples of metallochromic indicators and the metal ions and pH conditions for which they are useful. Abstract: Complexometric titration was used to determine the water hardness of an unknown sample. Although many quantitative applications of complexation titrimetry have been replaced by other analytical methods, a few important applications continue to be relevant. Transfer 50 mL of tap water to four different Erlenmeyer flasks. If the metal–indicator complex is too strong, the change in color occurs after the equivalence point. Other absorbing species present within the sample matrix may also interfere. The concentration of Cl– in a 100.0-mL sample of water from a freshwater aquifer was tested for the encroachment of sea water by titrating with 0.0516 M Hg(NO3)2. First, however, we discuss the selection and standardization of complexation titrants. Solving gives [Cd2+] = 4.7×10–16 M and a pCd of 15.33. The evaluation of hardness was described earlier in Representative Method 9.2. This is often a problem when analyzing clinical samples, such as blood, or environmental samples, such as natural waters. The ability of EDTA to potentially donate its six lone pairs of electrons for the formation of coordinate covalent bonds to metal cations makes EDTA a hexadentate ligand. \end{align}\], Substituting into equation 9.14 and solving for [Cd2+] gives, \[\dfrac{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}{C_\textrm{Cd}C_\textrm{EDTA}} = \dfrac{3.13\times10^{-3}\textrm{ M}}{C_\textrm{Cd}(6.25\times10^{-4}\textrm{ M})} = 9.5\times10^{14}\], \[C_\textrm{Cd}=5.4\times10^{-15}\textrm{ M}\], \[[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}] = \alpha_\mathrm{Cd^{2+}} \times C_\textrm{Cd} = (0.0881)(5.4\times10^{-15}\textrm{ M}) = 4.8\times10^{-16}\textrm{ M}\]. Solutions of Ag+ and Hg2+ are prepared using AgNO3 and Hg(NO3)2, both of which are secondary standards. A red to blue end point is possible if we maintain the titrand’s pH in the range 8.5–11. Report the weight percents of Ni, Fe, and Cr in the alloy. An important limitation when using an indicator is that we must be able to see the indicator’s change in color at the end point. Adjust the sample’s pH by adding 1–2 mL of a pH 10 buffer containing a small amount of Mg2+–EDTA. In section 9B we learned that an acid–base titration curve shows how the titrand’s pH changes as we add titrant. After filtering and rinsing the precipitate, it is dissolved in 25.00 mL of 0.02011 M EDTA. 3) La stabilité résulte de: − plusieurs sites complexant (6) − structure en forme de “cage” Watch the recordings here on Youtube! First, we add a ladder diagram for the CdY2– complex, including its buffer range, using its logKf´ value of 16.04. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, or EDTA, is an aminocarboxylic acid. At the equivalence point all the Cd2+ initially in the titrand is now present as CdY2–. Complex titration with EDTA EDTA, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid , has four carboxyl groups and two amine groups that can act as electron pair donors, or Lewis bases . Because the calculation uses only [CdY2−] and CEDTA, we can use Kf´ instead of Kf´´; thus, \[\dfrac{[\mathrm{CdY^{2-}}]}{[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}]C_\textrm{EDTA}}=\alpha_\mathrm{Y^{4-}}\times K_\textrm f\], \[\dfrac{3.13\times10^{-3}\textrm{ M}}{[\mathrm{Cd^{2+}}](6.25\times10^{-4}\textrm{ M})} = (0.37)(2.9\times10^{16})\]. Table 9.10 provides values of αY4– for selected pH levels. Because EDTA forms a stronger complex with Cd2+ it will displace NH3, but the stability of the Cd2+–EDTA complex decreases. (a) Titration of 50.0 mL of 0.010 M Ca2+ at a pH of 3 and a pH of 9 using 0.010 M EDTA. The molarity of EDTA in the titrant is, \[\mathrm{\dfrac{4.068\times10^{-4}\;mol\;EDTA}{0.04263\;L\;EDTA} = 9.543\times10^{-3}\;M\;EDTA}\]. After the equivalence point the absorbance remains essentially unchanged. Because not all the unreacted Cd2+ is free—some is complexed with NH3—we must account for the presence of NH3. Complexometric titration (sometimes chelatometry) is a form of volumetric analysis in which the In practice, the use of EDTA as a titrant is well established . Add 1–2 drops of indicator and titrate with a standard solution of EDTA until the red-to-blue end point is reached (Figure 9.32). We can solve for the equilibrium concentration of CCd using Kf´´ and then calculate [Cd2+] using αCd2+. The concentration of a solution of EDTA was determined by standardizing against a solution of Ca2+ prepared using a primary standard of CaCO3. Standardization is accomplished by titrating against a solution prepared from primary standard grade NaCl. The third step in sketching our titration curve is to add two points after the equivalence point. Explore more on EDTA. 2. EXPERIMENT 7: QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION OF TOTAL HARDNESS IN DRINKING WATER BY COMPLEXOMETRIC EDTA TITRATION Chemistry 26.1 Elementary Quantitative Inorganic Analysis Because Ca2+ forms a stronger complex with EDTA, it displaces Mg2+, which then forms the red-colored Mg2+–calmagite complex. The concentration of Cl– in the sample is, \[\dfrac{0.0226\textrm{ g Cl}^-}{0.1000\textrm{ L}}\times\dfrac{\textrm{1000 mg}}{\textrm g}=226\textrm{ mg/L}\].
