Volumetric analysis involves oxidation-reduction
reaction or (redox reaction).
Iodometry is one of the most important redox titration
Iodometry also known as iodometric titration is a
measured of volumetric chemical analysis, a redox
reaction where the appearance or disappearance of
elementary iodine indicates the end point.
Iodometry is of two types:

Iodomtery: The indirect titration of iodine produced

when an oxidizing analyte is added to excess iodide.
Iodimetry: The direct iodometric titration in which a
reducing analyte is titrated with iodine (titrant).

Take a known volume of standard K2Cr2O7 solution in an iodometric
flask. Add NaHCO3 along with 4M HCl.
In order to expel out the oxygen from the reaction mixture which
can interfere in chemical reactions
2nd purpose of adding HCl is ,Redox reactions are pH dependent.
Now Add KI and Cover the flask and keep in dark for 5 minutes.
Light can act as catalyst and will oxidize I - into I2 .
Titrate the brown content of flask against Na2S2O3.5H2O until it
becomes pale yellow. Add starch and titrate again until blue
color turns sea green.

Starch gives water insoluble complex with I2 when it is in
high concentrations so it added comparatively late.
End point:

Analysis of sample solution:

Take a known volume of sample solution in iodometric flask.

Add about 2g of NaHCO3.

Acidify the mixture with dilute H2SO4

Add about 2g solid KI and then cover the flask.

keep in the dark for 5 minutes.

Now titrate with standard Na2S2O3.5H2O solution using starch
