The objective of this experiment is to familiarise with back titration for the determination of calcium carbonate in toothpaste and to determine the percentage of CaCO3 in toothpaste. For this experiment, an excess of HCl was added to a weighed quantity of toothpaste containing calcium carbonate. Back titration is used in this case instead of direct or forward titration as calcium carbonate is insoluble. From the two repeated back titrations that I’ve done, I’ve got an average of 23.73% of calcium carbonate in the toothpaste that I’ve tested. That is fairly near to the desired percentage of abrasive that a toothpaste should contain, which is 10-70% but preferably 20%, and with that I conclude that this experiment was a success.
