ntroduction
Redox titration using sodium thiosulphate as a reducing agent is also known as iodometric titration. The reaction is:- I2(aq) + 2NA2S2O3(aq) 2Nal(aq) + 2Na2S4O6(aq)
I2(aq) + 2S2O32-(aq)2I-(aq) + S4O62-(aq)
In this equation, I2 has been reduced to I-:
2S2O32-(aq)S4O62-(aq) + 2e-
I2(aq) + 2e- 2I-(aq)
The iodine/ thiosulphate titration is a general method for determining the concentration of oxidizing solution. A known volume of an oxidizing agent is added into an excess solution of acidified potassium iodide. The reaction will release iodine:-

Example:
a. With KMnO4
2MnO4-(aq) + 16H+ (aq)+ 10I-(aq) 2Mn2+(aq) + 5I2(aq) + 8H2O(I)

b. With KIO3
O3-(aq) + 5I-(aq) + 6H (aq) 3I2(aq) + 3H2O(aq)

The iodine that is released is titrated with a standard thiosulphate solution. From the stoichiometry of the reaction, the amount of iodine can be determined and from this the concentration of the oxidizing agent, which released the iodine, can be calculated....
