Analytical Methods Classical Methods : Wet chemical methods such as precipitation, extraction, distillation, boiling or melting points, gravimetric and titrimetric measurements. Instrumental Methods : Analytical measurements (conductivity, electrode potential, light absorption or emission, mass-to-charge ratio, fluorescence etc.) are made using instrumentation.
