Difference Between Titration and Titrant

Titrationnoun

The process, operation, or method of determining the concentration of a substance in solution by adding to it a standard reagent of known concentration in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed, usually as shown by a color change or by electrical measurement, and then calculating the unknown concentration.

Titrantnoun

A substance, such as a solution, of known concentration used in titration.

Titrationnoun

(analytical chemistry) The determination of the concentration of some substance in a solution by slowly adding measured amounts of some other substance (normally using a burette) until a reaction is shown to be complete, for instance by the colour change of an indicator.

Titrantnoun

(analytical chemistry) The reagent of known concentration and volume used in titrations.

Titrationnoun

a measured amount of a solution of unknown concentration is added to a known volume of a second solution until the reaction between them is just complete; the concentration of the unknown solution (the titer) can them be calculated
