  • Inhalation Risk:A harmful contamination of the air will not or will only very slowly be reached on evaporation of this substance at 20 °C; on spraying or dispersing, however, much faster.
  • Effects of Short Term Exposure:The substance is irritating to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. The substance may cause effects on the blood. This may result in the formation of methaemoglobin. The effects may be delayed. Medical observation is indicated.
  • Effects of Long Term Exposure:Repeated or prolonged contact may cause skin sensitization in rare cases.
  • Uses Manufacture of rubber products, wood adhesives, dyes, explosives, and cosmetics; in photography. 1. It can be used as the raw materials for the production of synthetic resins, adhesives, dyes and ultraviolet absorbing agent. It can also be used as the dipped cord of tire. Medically it can be used as the disinfection antiseptic agent. 2. Resorcinol is also known as 1, 3-hydroquinone. In the field of pesticides, it can be used as the intermediate 3-chloro-4-methyl coumarin and herbicide oxyfluorfen in the synthesis of pesticides coumaphos. It can also be used for the production of dyes, specialty coatings, pharmaceuticals, photographic material, synthetic resins, adhesives, and cosmetics. 3. Resorcinol is mainly used for the field of rubber adhesives, synthetic resins, dyes, preservative, pharmaceutical and analytical reagents. Resorcinol is similar with phenol and cresol. It can generate condensation polymer through the reaction with formaldehyde. It can be used for making glue silk and the adhesive agent of tire cord for nylon-purpose, making wood glue, and being as the adhesive for vinyl material and metal. Resorcinol is the intermediate of many kinds of azo dyes and fur dyes as well as the raw material of pharmaceutical intermediates, p-nitrogen salicylic acid. Resorcinol has bactericidal effects and can be used as preservatives for being supplied to cosmetics and dermatological drugs pastes and ointments. The resorcinol derivatives, β-methylumbelliferone can be used as the intermediate for optical bleach; tri-nitro resorcinol is detonator. There is also a considerable amount of resorcinol being used in the production of benzophenone-class ultraviolet absorbers. This product can irritate the skin and mucous membranes, can cause poisoning disease through the rapid absorption by the skin. Minimum lethal dose of rat being subject to subcutaneous injection is 450mg/kg. 4. It can be applied to the fields of photographic film, medicines, dyes and chemical fiber industry. 5. It can also be used as reagents for analysis. 6. It can be used for characterization and determination of zinc, lead, tartaric acid, nitrate and nitrite through colorimetric method; it can also applied to the colorimetric reaction for measuring sugar and Furfuryl alcohol; as the reagent for detecting ketone sugars and lignin; it can also applied to the salt reagent of diazonium compound as well as to organic synthesis. Resorcinol is used in the manufacture of resorcinol–formaldehyde resins, resin adhesives, dyes, drugs, andexplosives; in tanning; in cosmetics; and in dyeing and printing textiles. In very mild solutions, resorcinol is used as an anti-septic and soothing preparation for itchy skin. In slightly higher concentrations, resorcinol removes the top layer of the stratum corneum and is used particularly in cases of acne. In still higher concentrations, it can act as an aggressive surface skin exfoliant. Resorcinol can also be used as a preservative. While it is a beneficial skin care ingredient when used in low concentrations, it causes irritation in higher concentrations with a strong burning sensation and a reddening of the skin. used in high concentrations as a peel, resorcinol may cause a variety of problems, including swelling. It is is obtained from various resins. A benzene derivative used as keratolytic and antiseborrheic. Also used in veterinary medicine as a topical antipruritic and antiseptic (has been used as intestinal antiseptic). anthelmintic An aromatic alcohol used as a chemical intermediate
  • description Resorcinol has bactericidal, fungicidal and anti-itching effect with the bactericidal effect being 1/3 of the phenol and also a low irritating and corrosive property. At low concentration, it can play the role promoting the regeneration of horny while having keratin exfoliation effect at high concentration. It is mainly used for rubber adhesives, plastics, synthetic resins, synthetic fibers, dyes, preservatives, anti-itch, anti-fungal agent, analytical reagent and can also be used to treat ringworm, eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, acne and psoriasis. Figure 1 3D structure of resorcinol. The above information is edited by the lookchem of Dai Xiongfeng.
  • Indications It can be used for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis, acne, superficial skin fungal infections, tinea versicolor, calluses, corns, and common warts. Resorcinol (resorcin), a phenol derivative, is less keratolytic than salicylic acid. This drug is an irritant and sensitizer and reported to be both bactericidal and fungicidal. Solutions containing 1% to 2% have been used in preparations for seborrhea, acne, and psoriasis.
