Investigating Natural Indicators for Acids and Bases

Investigating Natural Indicators for Acids and Bases

IN THIS EXPERIMENT YOU WILL…

Be introduced to acids An acid is a molecule or ion capable of donating a hydron or, alternatively, capable of forming a covalent bond with an electron pair and basesBases are substances that, in aqueous solution, release hydroxide (OH−) ions, are slippery to the touch, can taste bitter if an alkali, change the color of indicators (e.g., turn red litmus paper blue), react with acids to form salts, promote certain chemical reactions (base catalysis), accept protons from any proton donor, and/or contain completely or partially displaceable OH− ions.. You will be able to identify them in a solution.
