A.) Introduction : 1.) Coulometry: electrochemical method based on the quantitative oxidation or reduction of analyte - measure amount of analyte by measuring amount of current and time required to complete reaction charge = current (i) x time in coulombs - electrolytic method external power added to system 2.) Example: - Coulometric Titration of Cl - Coulometric Methods

3.) Based on Measurement of Amount of Electricity (or charge, in coulombs) Required to Convert Analyte to Different Oxidation State - Q = It for constant current with time where: 0 t

4.) Two Types of Coulometric Methods a) amperostatic (coulmetric titration) - most common of two b) potentiostatic Fundamental requirement for both methods is 100% current efficiency - all e - go to participate in the desired electrochemical process - If not, then takes more current
