Complexometric titrations rely on a drastic change of the pM value at the equivalence point with a water soluble chelator forming typically 1 : 1 complexes of high stability. The available chemical toolbox of suitable chelating compounds is unfortunately limited because many promising complexing agents are not water soluble. We introduce here a novel class of complexometric titration reagents, a suspension of polymeric nanospheres whose hydrophobic core is doped with lipophilic ion-exchanger… CONTINUE READING
