The experimental determination of equilibrium constants is required to estimate concentrations of reagents and/or products in environmental chemical reactions. For an example, the choice of copper (Cu) complexation reactions was motivated by their fast kinetics and the ease of measurement of Cu by an ion-sensitive electrode. Each individual titrant of sulfate () and oxalate () was expected to have its own unique characteristics, depending on the bonding in Culigands connected to the aqueous species. The complexation reaction of Cu with somewhat fast reached equilibrium status compared with . The experimental equilibrium constants () of copper sulfate () and copper oxalate () were determined and , respectively.
