General description

3-Methylphenol, a substituted phenol, is a common water pollutant. It is found to be toxic to fish and aquatic biota, even when present in trace quantities.

Application

2-Methylphenol may be used as an analytical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in petroleum crude oils, industrial wastewater and in fish bile by various chromatographic techniques.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
3-Methylphenol can be used in the preparation of 3-methylcyclohexanone via hydrogenation reaction in the presence of nickel catalyst. It can also be used in the synthesis of toluene, via hydrogenation in the presence of bimetallic nickel-iron catalyst. It can find applications as a solvent for the ultraviolet-visible light spectral studies of chemically synthesized soluble acrylic acid doped polyaniline.

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60 - The cresol (methylphenol) isomers are also precursors to many chemicals. This chromatogram of a mix of aromatic and methylphenol compounds was generated using an SLB-IL60 ionic liquid column. Its interaction mechanisms allow the separation of all three xylene isomers, and all three cresol isomers.
