end point

the completion of a reaction.

end point

1 (in chemistry) the point at which the condition of equivalence is reached during a titration. This may be indicated by reaching a maximum value in the slope of a titration curve, for example.
2 the point or time at which an activity is finished.
3 the point at which a chemical indicator changes color, for example, in an acid-base titration.

end point

Outcome, see there Clinical trials A measured outcome that marks the closure of a particular clinical question; EPs may be true–eg, reduction of mortality, prolongation of life, or surrogate–eg, lowering of BP, ↓ arrhythmias Lab medicine Any final point in a reaction or process, at which time the results are analyzed or interpreted.
