The handling of chemicals in the laboratory presents a challenge in instructing large class sizes and when students are relatively new to the laboratory environment. In this work, we describe and demonstrate an augmented reality colorimetric titration tool that operates out of the smartphone or tablet of students. It allows multiple students to conduct the exercise at the same time, respond quickly to actions made, and correctly depict the colors associated with changes in pH values for the indicator used. The tool imbues unparalleled realism in the conduct of the experiment and offers to strongly help students acquire bench skills with minimal use of liquid chemicals, thereby reducing handing risks for them and resulting in lower negative impacts on the environment. The feedback received from undergraduate students that participated in an initial small test exercise with the tool corroborates this.
