Description of key information

As pure substance, p-cresol is crystalline solid, has a phenolic odour and is colourless or yellow or brown. However p-cresol is typically used containing impurities which lead to lower melting points. Therefore, technical product is liquid but crystallisation may occur at colder ambient temperataures while stored. In these cases, the substance is warmed up in order to get a melt. Thus, the substance is mainly used in a liquid form.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
