General description

Phenol is a derivative of benzene and is majorly used in the manufacture of bisphenol A, phenolic resins and caprolactam. Its other applications include the manufacture of variety of compounds in pharma industry, dyes, explosives, rubber and agriculture.
Pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control, provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to the preparation of in-house working standards.


These Secondary Standards are qualified as Certified Reference Materials. These are suitable for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration requirements.
Phenol may be used as a standard in determining the concentration of phenol present in samples of water using gas chromatography coupled with electron capture detector (GC-ECD).

Analysis Note

These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.

Other Notes

This Certified Reference Material (CRM) is produced and certified in accordance with ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025. All information regarding the use of this CRM can be found on the certificate of analysis.

We previously reported that bis-phenol derivatives, including LG190178 (3a), possess not only vitamin D receptor (VDR) agonistic activity, but also androgen receptor (AR) antagonistic activity. Here, we describe the design, synthesis and evaluation of silicon-containing bis-phenol derivatives, with the objective
