Phenols and cresols

JFE Chemical manufactures high-purity

phenols by distilling

and refining coal tar.

Phenols are basic chemicals used as raw materials for resins and flame retardants. Cresols are used as raw materials in the production of semiconductor sealing materials, insulating varnishes, and medicines.

JFE Chemical manufactures high-purity phenols by distilling and refining coal tar.
Features
  • We manufacture high-purity phenols at high yield by a combination of continuous and batch distillation.
  • Our phenols, o-Cresol, and mp-Cresol in particular are of synthesis grade, due to their low concentrations of sulfur and alkali.
  • We can ship in drums, road tankers, and ISO containers.

Phenols

In the structure of phenols, a single hydrogen (H) atom of the benzene ring is replaced by a hydroxyl group (-OH).
Phenols are extensively used in manufacturing bisphenol A and phenol resins, which are used as raw materials for polycarbonates.

Main applications
  • Raw material for phenol resins
    (e.g., flame retardants)
  • Raw material for resin additives
  • Raw material for polycarbonate

Phenols

Cresols

In the structure of cresols, a single hydrogen (H) atom of the phenol benzene ring is replaced by a methyl group (-CH3).
There are three isomers of cresol, in accordance with the position of the methyl group. These are called ortho-Cresol, meta-Cresol, and para-Cresol.
We supply ortho-Cresol as an isolated substance, as well meta-Cresol and para-Cresol as a mixture.

Main applications
  • Raw materials for photoresist
  • Raw materials for semiconductor sealing materials
  • Agricultural chemical intermediates
  • Dyes
  • Varnishes

o-Cresol

m-Cresol

p-Cresol

Xylenol acid

In the structure of xylenol acid, two of the hydrogen (H) atoms of the phenol benzene ring are replaced by methyl groups (-CH3).
There are six isomers of chloroxylenol, in accordance with the positions of the methyl groups.
We sell these as a mixture of xylenol acids.

Main applications
  • Enamel varnishes
  • Raw material for resin additives
