Methyl Orange is a synthetically derived organic azo dye. It shows red color in acidic medium (below pH 3.1) and yellow color in basic medium (above pH 4.4) and is thus often used as a pH indicator in laboratory experiments and other various applications to monitor pH changes.

Methyl Orange is a pH indicator that works by undergoing a color change in response to the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. In an acidic environment, it appears red, while in an alkaline environment, it turns yellow. This color shift is due to the molecule’s structure, which changes in response to variations in pH, making it a valuable tool for determining pH levels in various chemical and biological applications.
Q. Does methyl orange dissolve in water?
Methyl Orange is soluble in water.
Q. How to prepare methyl orange indicator?
Methyl Orange indicator solution can be prepared by dissolve 0.1 g of methyl orange in 80 ml of water followed by addition of sufficient ethanol (95 %) to produce 100 ml.
Q. Is methyl orange acidic or basic?
Methyl Orange is a weak acid.
Q. Is methyl orange polar?
Methyl Orange is a polar molecule. It contains polar covalent bonds due to differences in electronegativity between the atoms in the molecule.
