o-Cresol (a.k.a. 2-Methylphenol) is a colorless, yellow, brown or pink liquid with an odor that resembles phenol. It is toxic by ingestion, inhalation or skin absorption. It is dangerous because it denatures cellular proteins causing fast poisoning. It is mainly used as disinfectant and it is a precursor of many compounds such as some herbicides and some pharmaceutical products.
