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 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.
Chemical Formula. C5H5N
Commercial Grades. USP/technical grade (min. 99% purity); reagent grade (min. 98% purity); crude; powder
Uses. Resorcinol is mainly used in the production of tires and other reinforced rubber products (such as conveyor belts, driving belts); rubber tackifier; wood adhesives; manufacturing of a wide range of resins; paints; dyes; inks; antimicrobial in pharmaceuticals; and laminated wood beams.
- Benzene + sulfur trioxide (sulfonation/alkali fusion)
- m-Diisopropylbenzene (liquid phase oxidation or hydroperoxidation, coproduced with acetone)
Derivatives. Resorcinol is used as raw material in the production of the following derivates: p-aminosalicylic acid; m-aminophenol; 1,3-cyclohexanedione; fluorescein; hexylresorcinol; resorcinol-formaldehyde resins; and urea-formaldehyde resins.
