Dictionary » T » Titrate



A chemistry lab technique used to find out the concentration of a substance (or concentrations of substances) by slowly putting in a known amount of another substance which can neutralise the effects of the unknown substance. A colour indicator (which reacts with neither) is also included, the colour of the solution changes when all of the unknown substance has been neutralised. The unknown is then inferred by looking at the total amount of known substance it took to neutralise all of it.

... continue on with same steps...has anyone done a similar protocol before?...Ideally how much second protein do I need to add, would I just need to titrate out different amounts? Thanks, b_06er

CFSE proliferation assay

... picks in lymphocyte population. Does anyone encounter this problem before and what could be the reasons. And next question is that I tried to titrate the amount of CFSE using different volume of the same stock and I got sotr of concentration dependent proliferation inhibition: cells cultured ...

Preparing buffer solns.

... slow coming back online. As for the 1x TAE, would it be correct just to take a tenth of each of the measurements? Furthermore, when do you know to titrate it? Is that only when you're trying to reach a certain pH of a soln? Thanks in advance!

... have been H2SO4 in which case you would have: H2SO4 + 2NaOH ----> Na2SO4 + 2H2O From the equation above you can see that 1 mole of acid would titrate with 2 mole base. We know this because of the 2 in front of the NaOH in other words, if you had spilled one mole of H2SO4 on your skin, you ...
