About Resorcinol. Resorcinol (a.k.a. Benzene-1,3-diol) is an organic compound in the aromatic alcohol class structurally similar to phenol, but with another hydroxyl group attached to the carbon ring (specifically 2 atoms of carbon away from the other one). It is a white crystalline powder, with a sweet odor, insoluble in water, but soluble in most organic solvents. Resorcinol is a synthetic alcohol and has been produced for more than 100 years. It has its main uses in the production of plastics/rubber and adhesives.

Resorcinol Handling. Resorcinol is classified as class 1 in flammability by the NFPA (flash point at 127°C), so it should be transported and stored away from heat sources. It is slightly more toxic than phenol and, in some places, like the EU, resorcinol must have a “harmful” label attached to its recipient.

Resorcinol Production. Raw materials and the respective production processes employed in the manufacturing of Resorcinol are listed below.

  • Benzene + sulfur trioxide (sulfonation/alkali fusion),
  • m-Diisopropylbenzene (liquid phase oxidation or hydroperoxidation, coproduced with acetone)

Resorcinol Uses. The uses and applications of Resorcinol may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Resorcinol are reagent grade (98% minimum purity); United States Pharmacopeia (USP)/technical grade (99% minimum purity); crude; and powder.
