Complexometric Titration

A titration based on a reaction between a ligand and a metal ion to form a complex. Endpoints in complexometric titrations are often determined using organochromic indicators.

e.g.

free Ca2+ in milk powder can be determined by titrating a milk powder sample with EDTA solution, which chelates calcium ion.
