Week 5 – Rainbow Cabbage

This week, we will be looking at the incredible Royal Society of Chemistry resource, ‘Rainbow Cabbage’ A.K.A. ‘The Red Cabbage PH Indicator’.  Please note that I do not own any of the resources used in this video, and have permission from @DrStephenHendry to share and link to these resources.


All RSC resources have been risk assessed by SSERC.  These are the two main sources for these videos: https://edu.rsc.org/resources/making-a-ph-indicator/422.article & https://edu.rsc.org/resources/outreach-red-cabbage-ph-indicator/1214.article

A really good Infographic from Compoundchem: https://www.compoundchem.com/2017/05/18/red-cabbage/

The RSC pH scale simulator: https://edu.rsc.org/resources/ph-scale-basics-simulation/1459.article

All RSC resources are freely available on our website to download. You may have to register for a free account if you use multiple resources however it is straightforward to do this.

RSC also have colour by pH that can be downloaded here.
