What is Phenolphthalein?
As an indicator, phenolphthalein's pH range is between 8.2-12 where it changes from colorless to pink/fucshia. In very acidic solutions near pH 0 phenolphthalein appears orange.
The phenolphthalein structure is a is good example of a C3 Point Group & shows "propeller" rotation. It was discovered in 1871 by German chemist Adolf von Baeyer & was commonly used as laxative until it was discovered to be a carcinogen.
