Instructions of Use
1. In case of fire, high heat or oxidant can cause burning. It has
weak acidity and reacts with sodium hydroxide to form soluble
sodium salt, but does not react with sodium carbonate. The o-cresol
sodium salt is reacted with an alkylating agent such as dimethyl
sulfate to form a phenol ether. Reacting with an aldehyde to obtain
a synthetic resin. Catalytic hydrogenation to form
methylcyclohexanol. Under mild conditions, o-cresol can be
nitrated, halogenated, alkylated and sulfonated. O-cresol is easily
oxidized, and the color becomes darker when it comes into contact
with light and air to form hydrazines and other complex compounds.
2. Toxic. Mainly acts on the central nervous system, and even death
in severe cases. Cresol vapor or smoke can damage the skin and
cause chronic nephritis and neurological disorders when inhaled.
The maximum allowable concentration in the workplace air is 5*10-6.
Rat oral LD501350mg/kg. Production equipment should be sealed and
operators should be equipped with protective equipment.
3. Stability: stable
4. Incompatible materials: strong oxidants, alkalis
5. Conditions to avoid contact: lighting
6. Polymerization hazard: no polymerization
Store in a cool, ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and
heat. The package is sealed and must not be in contact with air. It
should be stored separately from oxidants, alkalis and food
chemicals, and should not be mixed. Equipped with the appropriate
variety and quantity of fire equipment. The storage area should be
provided with suitable materials to contain spills.
