The bromocresol green pH indicator was encapsulated into transparent monolithic silica matrices using acid catalyzed sol‐gel reaction. Tetraethylorthosilicate was used for the entrapment of the bromocresol green indicator. The immobilized bromocresol green shows behavior similar to its solution counterpart. It retains its structure during the sol‐gel reactions in terms of response to pH and albumine. The polarized light microscopy has indicated that the bromocresol green molecules are strongly… 
Encapsulation of Bromothymol Blue pH‐Indicator into a Sol‐Gel Matrix
Transparent monolithic silica doping with bromothymol blue has been prepared by the acid catalyzed sol‐gel reaction of tetraethylorthosilicate in the presence of bromothymol blue. The immobilized
Spectrophotometric Studies of Entrapped Thymol Phtalein pH Indicator into Sol‐Gel Matrix
Thymol phtalein can be immobilized in sol‐gel glasses and used as a solid pH sensor and the UV/vis spectra indicate that the thymolphthalein retains its structure during thesol‐gel reactions in terms of response to pH.
