Description

In experiment C4.2.2.1, the pH-dependent colour of the indicator bromothymol blue is used to determine the pKa value of the dye. The colouration enables the simultaneous determination of the concentration of the protonated (yellow) and non-protonated (blue) form of the indicator, with which, in turn, the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation



can be used to compute the pKa value.
