Enough materials are included to perform the demonstration seven times. Concepts: Acid–base indicators, complex ions. Time Required: 15 minutes Chemicals Provided: Phenolphthalein and thymolphthalein indicator solutions, ammonium hydroxide, iron(III) chloride, hydrochloric acid, sodium fluoride solution and potassium thiocyanate solution.
