Analysis is a very important branch of chemistry, for it is such a practical part of the science. Analysis is itself divided into two parts. Qualitative analysis discovers what things are present in the material in question. Quantitative analysis then determines how much of each ingredient is present. This thesis considers a limited section of quantitative analysis.
This thesis deals with the use of iodine in volumetric analysis, which is called either iodimetry or iodometry. In this type of analysis, the iodine is used in solution and reacts with some other material, also in solution, and takes up electrons. That is, the iodine is reduced, or electronized. In the second volume of the work referred to above the thirteenth chapter of some eighty pages is devoted to "Practical Methods of Iodometry."2 There are obviously many applications of this method. Our study was confined to the reaction of iodine with arsenic trioxide, concerning which Kolthoff says: "Standardization against arsenious oxide has proved to be best."3
