Aurin (C.I. 43800), sometimes named rosolic acid or corallin is an organic compound, forming yellowish or deep-red crystals with greenish metallic luster. It is practically insoluble in water, freely soluble in alcohol. It is soluble in strong acids to form yellow solution, or in aqueous alkalis to form carmine red solutions.


Due to this behaviour it can be used as pH indicator with pH transition range 5.0 - 6.8. It used as intermediate in manufacturing of dyes.


Aurin is formed by heating of phenol and oxalic acid in concentrated sulfuric acid.


Causes eye, skin, and respiratory tract irritation. Avoid ingestion and/ or inhalation.
