Abstract/ Summary

This paper describes a comparative study of the performance of microscale titrations using 2-mL microscale burets with those using Beral pipets and normal 50- and 10-mL burets. The usefulness of a microburet in general and analytical chemistry is demonstrated by presenting results from acid-base, oxidation-reduction, precipitation, complexometric, and pH titrations. Several versatile features of using a microscale buret such as cost effectiveness, time savings, and accessibility for the physically challenged has been emphasized.
