What is Para-Cresol?

Para-Cresol (P-Methylphenol, also known as p-hydroxytoluene, chemical formula is C7H8O), is an organic compound and a phenolic substance. It contains a hydroxyl group (-OH) directly connected to the benzene ring, and there is a methyl (-CH3) side chain on a carbon atom of the benzene ring. The methyl group is located in the para position of the benzene ring (that is, separated from the hydroxyl group). two carbon atoms). Para-cresol is a colorless or light yellow crystal with a unique aromatic smell of phenolic compounds. It is soluble in alcohol, ether, chloroform and hot water, and slightly soluble in cold water.
