what other acid indicators are there other than phenolphthalein?
Are there any better indicators than phenolphthalein?

  • Chemistry -

    Hi Bo,
    we have several indicators, including litmus, universal indicator, bromothymol blue, methyl orange, and screened methyl orange. There are many, and the list can go on forever, but these are most commonly used. The best, in my case, would be universal indicator or litmus.

    Hope I helped! Thanks :)
