Laboratory analysis of phenol (CAS 108-95-2)

What is phenol and how is it used in the industry?

Phenols are aromatic chemical compounds with a hydroxyl function. Its derivatives are called polyphenols. We can also find them naturally in plants.

Under normal conditions of temperature and pressure, phenol is a solid that appears as a crystalline mass or colorless needles. In the presence of impurities, water or light, phenol turns pink or red.

Phenol is mainly used as an intermediate in organic and industrial chemistry:

Production of complex compounds (phenolic resins, bisphenol A, etc…) ;
Plastics industry
For the manufacture of plasticizers, adhesives, hardeners, solvents, insulators…

Because of its toxicity and corrosive properties, serious preventive measures are required when storing and using phenol.
