Uncertainity in Dispensing a Reagent

Concentrated HCl is 37.2% w/w HCl (±0.5% w/w) and has a density of 1.19 g/mL (±0.01 g/mL).  Suppose that you need to dispense 0.0500 mol of HCl with an uncertainty of no more than ±2% (that is, an uncertainty of … Continue reading

Concentrations

Gratzel et. al. [Anal. Chem. 1999, 71, 2751-2756] describe the use of a diffusional microburet to transfer solutions to very small droplets of solvent. The purpose of their work is to run conventional analyses, such as titrations, on an extremely … Continue reading
