Thymolphthalein is a pH indicator. It has two transition ranges:

  • Below pH 0, it is red. At pH 0 and above, it is colorless.
  • The second transition is around pH 9.3–10.5. Below this level, Thymolphthalein is colorless; above, it is blue. The molar extinction coefficient for the blue Thymolphthalein dianion is 38,000 M−1 cm−1 at 595 nanometers.[1]
