Try searching for =8CpH 9 indicators=B9 or whatever you need. This is great for when a chemical or reagent has an IUPAC and a common name or trade name which we run into sometimes. Then check out the search results for a reliable link. In most cases you will get links to the chemical manufacturers (for reagent info). If Google is not a preferred choice, performing a search on any of the chemical or lab supplier web sites, such as Spectrum or Sigma, will also work. They will also if performing a site search, list the products they offer for such analysis.

The original poster could: - Ask a question on the list - Read a quantitative analysis book - Look up indicators in the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics - Go to the library and find the answer - Go to the internet and query Google. He chose to go to take the easy route and ask the list and could have gotten a response with the sole answer for the indicator. No reference and I suspect no university would accept that either. He got a link to Wikipedia which has citations. The next two options are peer reviewed sources and he chose not to take that route. The fourth, the library, option which few people seem to use these days has all the sources there for review. The last option, again which the OP chose not to use has several links - some with citations. I ask again, what is this discussion about?
