Classic AP Requirement #8—Determination of Concentration by Oxidation–Reduction Titration

Students standardize a solution of potassium permanganate by redox titration with a standard solution of iron(II) ions. They will then take this potassium permanganate solution and titrate it against a solution of oxalic acid. The data will then be used to calculate the exact concentration of the oxalic acid solution. Students gain experience in the process of titration and standardization, writing half reactions and calculating molar concentrations and oxidation numbers.

Complete for 24 students working in pairs.

Oxidation–Reduction Titrations Inquiry Guidance and AP* Chemistry Curriculum Alignment Transition Guide available!
