Classical Techniques

Classical methods, also known as bench, fast or wet chemistry, exclude analysis using instrumentation.  Basic experimentation techniques like measuring, mixing, weighing are used. Gravimetry describes a set of methods for the quantitative determination of an analyte based on the mass of a solid.  Volumetry or titrimetry are based on a measurement of a volume.  Bench chemistry only includes techniques that use simple devices in keeping with the classical spirit.
