In an effort to understand the extent of impurities in these dyes and the potential impact on the expanded uncertainty of spectrophotometric pH measurements, we have examined seven commercially available sulfonephthalein pH indicators using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS): bromocresol green (BCG), bromocresol purple (BCP), bromothymol blue (BTB), cresol red (CR), meta-cresol purple (MCP), phenol red (PR), and thymol blue (TB).

Resins were synthesized by condensation of formaldehyde with various combinations of meta-cresol, para-cresol and, in some instances, other alkyl substituted phenols such that the mole ratio of formaldehyde to total phenolic components was about 0.7/1.
