Thymolphthalein is an indicator to detect the acidic and basic nature of any solution and has a transition range between 9.3-10.5, above this range the indicator turns blue and below this range it is colorless. Thymolphthalein can be formulated from phthalic anhydride and thymol by Friedel-Crafts alkylation.
Thymolphthalein indicator solution includes Ethyl alcohol (64-17-5) >99%, and Thymolphthalein (125-20-2) 0.04%. The thymolphthalein indicator is an alcoholic and clear solution, having an odour as that of ethyl alcohol and contains denatured ethyl alcohol.
The addition of denatured ethyl alcohol makes the solution poisonous and thus becomes toxic by inhalation and ingestion. It is a flammable liquid due to the content of ethyl alcohol, having a flash point of 9 degree Celsius.
The solution is highly reactive and reacts vigorously with peroxides, oxidizers, acids, acid anhydrides, ammonia, alkali metals, heat, moisture and any other source of ignition. It is quite toxic to human body and causes headache, irritant, dizziness, nausea if exposed to humans, and it mainly targets the human organs like liver, eyes, nerves and kidneys.
