Cresol (o-, m-, p-)

Cresol (o-, m-, p-) (CH3C6H4) is a widely-occurring organic compound. O-cresol is a colorless, yellow, or pink liquid, toxic. P-cresol is a combustible colorless solid, smells of tar and sensitive to heat and light. M-cresol is a colorless to yellow liquid, hygroscopic and toxic. Because it is flammable, we recommend a safe chemical storage building that meets specific regulations for storing Cresol (o-, m-, p-).
