Cresols are isomeric phenols with a methyl substituent at the ortho (o-cresol), meta (mcresol), or para (p-cresol) position relative to the hydroxyl group. Metacresol, or m-cresol, is a cresol with the methyl substituent at position 3. Cresols have a wide variety of uses as solvents or disinfectants or as intermediates in the production of numerous other substances. These compounds are most commonly used in the production of fragrances, antioxidants, dyes, pesticides and resins. Metacresol, either pure or mixed with p-cresol, is important in the production of contact herbicides and insecticides. Furthermore, many flavor and fragrance compounds and several important antioxidants are produced from metacresol. Metacresol is also used in the manufacture of explosives.
