Titration Competition 2016

Secondary schools are invited to enter teams in the State and National Titration Competitions.

The RACI titration competitions are designed to encourage those students who enjoy Chemistry, particularly its practical side, to develop their skills and to reward those who attain a high level of proficiency. All secondary schools are invited to compete in their local state-based competition. Entrants compete in teams of three (3).

In the competition, each team performs a simple acid-base titration exercise. Each team will standardise a sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution against a supplied hydrochloric acid (HCl) solution and then is to standardise three (3) acetic acid solutions with the sodium hydroxide solution. Judging will be on the basis of the values each team reports for the titres and concentrations of the NaOH and acetic acid solutions. Teams will be ranked on how close they get to the actual concentration.

The top teams in each State competition will be put forward to represent their state in the National Finals in October. All national finalists receive a gold or silver badge and a team plaque is awarded to outstanding teams.
