When we first started measuring moisture with Karl Fischer, I was instructed in the complex chemical reactions involved. I was also was told that the process was skittish.Read More

As you know the Karl Fischer Method of moisture analysis has a reputation of being water specific. The method works through the use of a special Karl Fischer Reagent.
As usual when we pose a question, like:
Should you use Coulometric or Volumetric Karl Fischer to measure moisture in your product?
We often get a the reaction, “So Who Cares?” We'll try to answer both questions.
Often I’m asked “What is Karl Fischer titration?” I’m always somewhat reticent to answer. If I can’t quickly change the subject I revert to a simple explanation, that even I (being somewhat challenged as a chemist) can understand. The explanation seems to help the novice understand Karl Fischer.Read More
