Cresol Specification

The Cresol, with the CAS registry number 1319-77-3, is also known as Cresol (mixed isomers). This chemical's molecular formula is C7H8O and molecular weight is 108.14.Its EINECS number is 215-293-2. What's more,Its systematic name is Cresol. It is the distillate of coal tar produced by the high temperature carbonization of bituminous coal. It consists primarily of aromatic hydrocarbons, tar acids and tar bases.It is Colorless to yellow liquids with a tarry odor,Insoluble in water.Stable. Combustible. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents. Cresol are organic compounds that are methylphenols. They are a widely occurring natural and manufactured group of aromatic organic compounds which are categorized as phenols (sometimes called phenolics). Depending on the temperature, Cresol can be solid or liquid because they have melting points not far from room temperature.

Safety Information of Cresol:
The Cresol is combustible. poisonous gases may be produced in fire. Flammable toxic vapors given off in a fire. Sealed closed containers can build up pressure if exposed to heat.It is harmful by inhalation,toxic in contact with skin and if swallowed and possible risk of irreversible effects.Also it is harmful to aquatic organisms, may cause long-term adverse effects in the aquatic environment.In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice. When you use it, wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and eye/face protection.Avoid release to the environment. Refer to special instructions safety data sheet .In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show label where possible) .
