    A problem with a flame test is that the colours which the flame turns to are open to interpretation. For example, somebody's red might be somebody else's dark orange etc.

    However, our teacher told us that there is a method of identifying the official colour but won't tell us the name of the method and says we have to try and find it ourselves online. I can't find it at all online so I'm wondering if anybody knows it? An answer or a point in the right direction would be truly helpful.

    Ionic wet tests is another method you could use as it's good for identifying the ionic compound; for example certain tests will result in precipitation forming and that indicates certain substance types. Also, functional group wet tests, these also identify a substance though the family it belongs to.
