Brief description / remarks:

Objective: To expertise the student regarding the working of Karl Fischer instrument.

This session was organized for Students of VIII Sem., who are appearing in various interviews process for quality control and pharmaceutical production. By this type of activity student will learn about the theoretical as well as practical aspects of the Karl Fischer instrument.  During the demonstration myself Karan Gupta taught the students about principal and working mechanism of Sophisticated Instruments. Karl Fischer titration is a classic titration method in analytical chemistry that uses coulometric or volumetric titration to determine trace amounts of water in a sample. The popularity of the Karl Fischer titration (henceforth referred to as KF) is due in large part to several practical advantages that it holds over other methods of moisture determination, such as accuracy, speed and selectivity Today, the titration is done with an automated Karl Fischer Instrument.  At the end, students were able to answer about the basics of Karl Fischer instrument Technique.
