Percent Composition: C 56.98%, H 3.94%, N 7.82%, O 22.32%, S 8.95%
Literature References: Prepn from 1-amino-2-naphthol-4-sulfonic acid and p-cresol: Lindstrom, Diehl, Anal. Chem. 32, 1123 (1960).
Properties: Red crystals from acetone. Sol in water. Absorption max (pH 10.10): 610 nm (e 20300). Functions as acid-base indicator: Aq solns are bright red at low pH, red at pH 7.1 to 9.1, blue at pH 9.1 to 11.4. The blue color at pH 10 is changed to red by the addition of calcium or magnesium.
Absorption maximum: Absorption max (pH 10.10): 610 nm (e 20300)
Use: As indicator in titration of Ca or Mg with EDTA.

Calmagite is a complexometric indicator used in analytical chemistry to identify the presence of metal ions in solution. As with other metal ion indicators calmagite will change color when it is bound to an ion. Calmagite will be wine red when it is bound to a metal ion and may be blue, red, or orange when it is not bound to a metal ion. Calmagite is often used in conjunction with EDTA, a stronger metal binding agent.[2] This chemical is also used in the quantitation of magnesium in the clinical laboratory.
