Definition of Complexometric titration

Complexometric titration Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
General Chemistry Glossary
 Say it 
A titration based on a reaction between a ligand and a metal ion to form a complex. For example, free Ca2+ in milk powder can be determined by titrating a milk powder sample with EDTA solution, which chelates calcium ion. Endpoints in complexometric titrations are often determined using organochromic indicators .

English Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia
Complexometric titration (sometimes chelatometry) is a form of volumetric analysis in which the formation of a colored complex is used to indicate the end point of a titration. Complexometric titrations are particularly useful for the determination of a mixture of different metal ions in solution. An indicator capable of producing an unambiguous color change is usually used to detect the end-point of the titration.
