A NEW PH INDICATOR THAT IS PERFECT FOR STUDENTS OF ANY AGE
What is "Savage Cabbage"?
So Hip and Cool that its "SAVAGE"

Make it Green!
Make other teachers "Green" with envy when your students learn about Bases in a fun creative way! Take Savage Cabbage and mix it with any common base (Example Sodium bicarbonate and Ammonia) to make the solution the color green(*will turn green with a pH level of 10)!
Red cabbage contains a pigment molecule called flavin (an anthocyanin). . Very acidic solutions will turn anthocyanin a red color. neutral solutions result in a purplish color. Basic Solutions appear a greenish color.
Make it Red!
This is for sure the only red liquid a teacher will want to see in a classroom! Add any common acid (Example citric acid and acetic acid) to Savage Cabbage and watch that liquid turn red(*will turn red with a pH level of 2)!
Make it Green!
How Can You Test It?
Backed up Science! Watch it in Action!
What are the properties of acids?
The properties of an acid are sour taste, turns blue litmus paper red in color, has a pH less than 7, reacts with hydrogen gas on active metals and conducts electricity.
What are the properties of bases?
The the properties of bases are releasing a hydroxide ion into water solution, neutralize acids in a neutralization reaction,denature protein,Bases turn red litmus to blue and a biter taste.
What makes a solution neutral?
A solution is neutral when the pH is 7. An example of this is pure water. It is neither acidic nor basic.
What does pH measure?
The pH of a solution is a measure of the molar concentration of hydrogen ions in the solution and as such is a measure of the acidity or basicity of the solution.
Savage Cabbage purpose is to introduce and excite students about chemistry for teachers everywhere.
