Bromothymol blue • Bromothymol blue (BTB) is a p. H indicator • It is normally blue but turns yellow when the p. H lowers • Carbon dioxide has a p. H of 5. 7 • When carbon dioxide is present the color will change from blue to yellow • Oxygen has a p. H of 6. 7 • When oxygen is present there will be no color change
