m-Cresol is an important organic intermediate (building block) to synthetize substituted aryl products.
m-Cresol is used as a disinfectant and solvent. LysolTM disinfectant is a 50% (v/v) mixed-cresol isomer in a soap emulsion formed on mixing with water. The isomer m-cresol is an oily liquid with low volatility. Besides disinfection at solutions of 1–5%, the cresols are used in degreasing compounds, paintbrush cleaners, and additives in lubricating oils. Cresols were once widely used for disinfection of poultry houses, but this use has been discontinued because they cause respiratory problems and abdominal edema in young chicks. m-Cresol has been used in synthetic resins, explosives, petroleum, photographic, paint, and agricultural industries.
