Methyl Red increasingly known as C.I Red 2 is a chemical dye used to accurately pinpoint pH of chemical reactions by assisting varying chemical reactions. This it does by adopting different hues. Acidic Solutions turns red when it comes in contact with methyl red. Methyl red in its basic form is crystalline red in nature. Segmentation of methyl red market by end-user includes chemical, industrial, research labs, microbiology, biotechnology and others. The marked pH indicators to chemical reactions that come under the scanner are a pH that turns red in region of below pH 4.4 and takes on a yellow hue for above 6.2 pH solutions. For all purposes, methyl red dye remains orange at intermediate values. Segmentation of methyl red market by region includes North America, Europe, Asia pacific, MEA and Latin America.
High demand for methyl red exists in countries such as U.S, Germany, Japan and China because of scorching pace of developments in these countries. The market for methyl red owes its growth to rising popularity of chemical industry in Asia Pacific. Drivers to the methyl red market include an enhanced market for microbiology and biotechnology segment with prolific growth expressed in food, beverages, pharmaceutical and chemical, exceptional diversification of research labs and attractive properties of methyl red. The biotechnology industry is on growth spree in regions of India and China. Biotechnology has permeated sectors such as food and beverages, pharmaceutical and chemical. Rapid growth being enacted in these sectors, methyl red market will also exhibit growth over next two years. Not losing stride it can be added that key drivers for methyl red market are its differentiated use in fields of biological and biotechnological areas. Methyl Red is soluble both in water and in ethanol and is inert at room temperature. Methyl Red is highly soluble in benzene, hot acetone, acetic acid, chloroform, lipids and alcohol. Methyl red exhibits partial solubility in petroleum ether.
Methyl Red on combustion is inclined to form carbon oxides and nitrogen oxides. In response to its use as an indicator in various chemical reactions, methyl red also finds use in spotting pH of different chemical solutions. Methyl Red is used in field of biotechnology and microbiology in Methyl- Red- Voges- Proskauer test. The test is used in segmentation of bacteria that produces acids that indicate stability for the better part observed during mixed acid fermentation process of glucose. Few of methyl red positive type of bacteria strain include proteus vulgaris and Escherichia coli. The negative strains include enterobacter aerogenes and serratia marcescens. Negative strains of methyl red include enterobacter aerogenes, and serratia marsecens. The Methyl-Red-Voges-Proskauer test characterizes the fermentation of sugars by various bacterial isolates. The gas escaped during fermentation was a mix of CO2 and H2. By addition of KOH in small amounts to glucose peptone media under O2. Key industries in the market include Dow Chemical Company, China Ruitai International holdings Co. Ltd., Shin Etsu Chemical Co.Ltd., Dai-Ichi Koygo Seiyaku Co. Ltd., Rettenmaier & Sohne GmbH + Co Kg (JRS).
