Top 5 Things You May Not Know About Titration
1. The term "titration" has its origins in the Latin word titulus, which means title or inscription.
2. Titration, also known as volumetric analysis, got its start in France in the late 1700s. In 1791, François-Antoine-Henri Descroizilles developed the first burette.
3. Later, in 1824, Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac coined the terms “burette” and “pipette” and created a better version of the burette that had a side arm.
4. Karl Friedrich Mohr tinkered with the burette further, adding a tip and clamp at the bottom, which helped to make titration an even more popular technique in the lab.
5. The first book on volumetric analysis was written by Karl Heinrich Schwartz and published in 1853.
