Gravimetry by Precipitation

  • Jean-Louis Burgot


Gravimetry is a method of quantitative chemical analysis. It qualifies as a macroscopic quantitative method of analysis because it involves relatively important quantities of a substance to be determined compared to more recent methods, such as electrochemical, spectroscopic, and chromatographic means. From this standpoint, it should instead be compared to titrimetric methods. However, it has remained a method of choice for the analysis of standard compounds, those compounds with which the more recent instrumental methods of analysis listed above are calibrated.
