What is cresol?

Cresol refers to an organic compound of the phenol family that has the chemical formula C7H8O. It occurs in three different isomeric forms, namely ortho-cresol, meta-cresol, and para-cresol, depending on the position of the hydroxyl group on the aromatic ring. Although it can also be found in small amounts in natural products, such as coal tar and crude oil, prolonged exposure to high levels of cresol can lead to serious health issues, including liver and kidney damage and neurological problems. As a result, cresol usage requires appropriate safety measures and minimal exposure. At present, cresol finds extensive applications in various industrial processes as a solvent, disinfectant, and raw material to produce resins and dyes across the globe.
