An Oxidation-Reduction Titration: The Reaction of Fe2+ and Ce4+

Experiment #8 from Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Conduct the potentiometric titration of the reaction between ferrous ammonium sulfate hexahydrate and ammonium cerium (IV) nitrate.
  • Measure the potential change of the reaction.
  • Determine the molar concentration of iron (II) ions in a sample of ferrous ammonium sulfate hexahydrate.

Potentiometric Titration of Hydrogen Peroxide

Experiment #32 from Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Conduct the potentiometric titration of the reaction between commercially available hydrogen peroxide and potassium permanganate.
  • Measure the potential change of the reaction.
  • Determine the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide solution.

Oxidation-Reduction Titrations

Experiment #19 from Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

In the Preliminary Activity, you will be titrating commercial bleach with hydrogen peroxide of known molarity in order to determine the molarity of the bleach sample.

After completing the Preliminary Activity, you will first use reference sources to find out more about oxidation, reduction, and oxidation-reduction titrations before you choose and investigate a researchable question using oxidation-reduction titrations.
