Ferroxyl indicator is a solution containing potassium hexacyanoferrate(III) and phenolphthalein. It turns blue in the presence of Fe2+ ions, pink in the presence of hydroxide ions, it can be used to detect metal oxidation. It is often used to detect rusting in various situations.  It can be prepared by dissolving 10g sodium chloride and 1g potassium hexacyanoferrate(III) in distilled water, adding 10 cm3 phenolphthalein indicator, then making up to 500 cm3 with distilled water. 

Ferroxyl porosity tests are used to detect porosity of metal coatings, such as copper, nickel, lead, and tin, upon iron or steel. You should not breathe vapors of ferroxyl indicator solution and adequate protection always shall be provided when using conducting a test in a closely confined place.
