What base and indicator would I use in an acid- base titration of bisphenol A? Thank you for any answers you can give me.
Question Date: 2010-01-27
Answer 1:

Certainly, bisphenol A is titratable; it has a pKa of somewhere around pH 10. A weak acid indicator, such as Phenolphthalein (very common and should be easily available), would be a good choice-- it is optimal for probing pH 8 to 10.
