Full Answer

Potentiometric titration measures the change in electrical potential as a neutralizing agent (titrant) is added to a chemical solution. Testing organizations like the American Society for Testing and Materials set national standards for measuring titration.

The process also measures oxidation or corrosion against the amount of titrant added, making it suitable for measuring acid concentration. The process uses a minimal amount of substance, making it an inexpensive method. The automotive, pharmaceutical, food, beverage and environmental companies are examples of industries using the process.
