Applications

Phenol is used as a precursor for cyclohexanone, plastics, nonionic detergents and pharmaceutical drugs like aspirin. It acts as an anesthetic in chloraseptic. It reacts with acetone to get bisphenol-A, which is used in the synthesis of poly carbonates and epoxide resins. It is also used in the manufacture of synthetic resins, dyes, pharmaceuticals, synthetic tanning agents, perfumes, lubricating oils and solvents. In molecular biology, it is used in the extraction of nucleic acid from tissues by using liquid/liquid phenol-chloroform extraction technique. It is an active component of paint strippers, which is used for the removal of epoxy and polyurethane. It is also used in the preparation of cosmetics, hair colorings and skin lightening preparations. In the field of medicine, its spray is useful in helping sore throat.

Notes

Air and light sensitive. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, strong bases and strong acids.
