Slide 2:

pH is a Potentiometric Measurement The Measuring System consists of a pH Measuring Electrode (indicating electrode) and Reference Electrode The Potential Difference Between the Two Electrodes is a Function of the pH Value of the Measured Solution. The Analyte Solution Must Be Conductive and is Part of the Electrical Circuit.

Potentiometric Analysis:

Potentiometric Analysis Based on potential measurement of electrochemical cells without any appreciable current The use of electrodes to measure voltages from chemical reactions

DEFINITION Potentiometry: “Measuring the potential or Emf of a solution by using the set of Indicator electrode and reference electrode”.

Slide 5:

The potential(E)of a metal elctrode at25 C,immersed into a solution of its own ions is given by E=E0 + 0.0592 × logc n Where, E0 = standard potential of the electrode n = valency of ions c = concentration of ions Nernest equation

HYDROGEN ELECTRODE It can be used as Indicator as well as Reference eletrode. It can be consist of platinum foil coated with platinum balck and has a wire contacts through a mercury. This assembly is enclosed in a glass covering. Hydrogen gas is passed at 1atmospheric pressure continuously. ( Pt (H 2 (1 atm), H + (1M)

Slide 13:

Then eletrode is dipped into the standard acid /unknown solution. All the times surface of the electrode and the solution should be saturated with the gas. potential , E=E0H+0.0592log[H+] =E0H-0.0592pH(pH=-log [H+] E=-0.0592 pH . E0=std Eof H2 electrode ,taken as 0

Slide 14:

Advantages and Disadvantages of H2Electrode: Advantages : It can be used over the entire pH. Itcan be used as a reference electrode when dipped with standard acid solution and as a indicator electrode when dipped into a sample solution. It is the primary reference standard against which the potentials of other electrodes are measured. Disadvantages It is effected by the presence of oxidizing agent and reducing agent. It is rather difficult to regulate the pressure of H2 gas to be exactly 1 atm throughout the experiment. Platinum foil gets easily poisoned by the impurities present in the H2 gas and Hcl solution.

Slide 15:

Saturated calomel elctrode It consist of inner jacket and outer sleeve Inner tube has a wire contact with mercury(Hg) and plugged with a mixture of calomel(Hg2cl2)and KCL. This is surrounded by an outer sleeve Tip is filled with Crystals of KCL and porous plug of asbestos. The space between inner jacket and outer sleeve is filled with saturated KCL/1N KCL/0.1 N KCL. Potential of the electrode depends on The Concentration of the KCL Solution. And Temperature.

Working principle of pH glass membrane electrode Principle of pH meter

Style of glass electrode:

Style of glass electrode The glass membrane itself is not limited to any configuration or shape; its only requirement is contact with solution. Therefore, different styles of glass electrodes have evolved to maximize pH sensing ability and extend longevity in some of the more difficult applications .

Properties of Glass pH electrode:

Properties of Glass pH electrode Potential not affected by the presence of oxidizing or reducing agents Operates over a wide pH range Fast response Functions well in physiological systems Very selective Long lifespan

Slide 33:

Theory of the glass membrane potential For the electrode to become operative, it must be soaked in water. During this process, the outer surface of the membrane becomes hydrated. When it is so, the sodium ions are exchanged for protons in the solution: The protons are free to move and exchange with other ions. Charge is slowly carried by migration of Na+ across glass membrane Potential is determined by external [H + ]

DIRECT POTENTIOMETRY A rapid and convenient method of determining the activity of cations/anions

Potentiometric Measurement:

Potentiometric Measurement Calibration Method Standard Addition Method

Potentiometric Titration:

Potentiometric Titration Involves measurement of the potential of a suitable indicator electrode as a function of titrant volume Provides MORE RELIABLE data than the usual titration method Useful with colored/turbid solutions May be automated More time consuming

Potentiometric Titration Curves:

Potentiometric Titration Curves

potentiometric titrations:

potentiometric titrations Is a technique similar to direct titration of a redox reaction. No indicator is used, (instead the potential across the analyte) typically an electrolyte solution is measured. To do this, two electrodes are used, an indicator electrode and a reference electrode. The indicator electrode forms an electrochemical half cell with the interested ions in the test solution. The reference electrode forms the other half cell, holding a consistent electrical potential.

When potentiometric titrations is used?:

When potentiometric titrations is used? It is used when the endpoints are very difficult to determine either when: 1- very diluted solution. 2-coloured and turbid solution. 3-absence of a suitable indicator.

Do not place the electrodes anywhere except attached to the electrode holder. At the end of the experiment rinse the electrodes and place each one in its housing as required. Never touch the glass part of the electrode with anything except soft tissue paper. While in use, the bulb of the glass electrode should be immersed in solution. IMORTANT TO KNOW

Slide 57:

For short-term storage the combined glass electrode should be immersed in solution of 2 M KCl. Buffer solutions of known pH are used for the pH calibration. For high accuracy, calibration and measurements are to be performed at the same temperature.

Slide 58:

1-the outside surface of the glass membrane is in contact with the sample being measured. 2-and the inside surface contact the inner filling solution . 3-A complex mechanism at each glass liquid interface defines the potential of the pH glass electrode. 4-While the pH inner glass /filling solution potential is constant , the outside potential varies based on the hydrogen ion concentration in the sample.

Slide 59:

Applications of Potentiometry: Direct potentiometry: A rapid and convinient method of detecting the activity of cations and anions. The technique used in this method is a comparison of the potential developed by the indicator electrode when it is immersed in the solution with that when it is immersed in standard solution of the analyte. The calibration curve method : It is applied for determination of substance by direct potentiometry. In which we plot potential of the cell Vs a series of standard solution of extragrade of the substance to be determined.
