Wet Chemical Standards

Wet chemistry is a form of analytical chemistry that uses classical methods to analyse materials. Chemical tests use reagents to indicate the presence of a specific chemical in an unknown solution. The reagents cause a unique reaction to occur based on the chemical it reacts with, allowing estimation of what chemical is in the solution

Wet chemistry techniques can be used for qualitative and semi-quantitative chemical measurements, such as visual changes in colour but often involve more quantitative chemical measurements, using methods such as spectrophotometry, gravimetry and titrimetry.

Wet Chemistry tests can also involve the semi-quantitative elemental analysis of samples, e.g., water sources, for items like:
