Question
Why does the chloride titration go to a purple color instead of the pink color described in the method?
Summary
Color of endpoint in chloride tirations
Answer
The endpoint color can be somewhat subjective. Focus on the obvious color change instead of the exact color. Also consider titrating a known standard to make certain of the identification of the end point. It can help to do the tiration with the flask on a white surface.
