Qualitative Analysis is the determination of non-numerical information about a chemical species, a reaction, etc. Examples would be observing that a reaction is creating gas that is bubbling out of solution or observing that a reaction results in a color change. Qualitative analysis is not as reliable as quantitative analysis but is often far easier, faster and cheaper to perform.
