Description

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.

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.

Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.
