3,5-Dimethylphenol Usage And Synthesis
3,5-Dimethylphenol was used in simultaneous determination of urinary concentrations of phenol, o-, p-, m-cresols, 1-, 2-naphthol and xylenol isomers by capillary gas chromatography. It was used as starting reagent for total synthesis of landomycin A, most potent antitumor angucycline antibiotic and optically active polypropionate units. It also finds application as adhesives, sealant chemicals, plating and surface treating agents. It is also used as a solvent for cleaning or degreasing. Further, it is employed as a chemical intermediate for antioxidants, phenolic resins, active pharmaceutical ingredients and metaxalone (muscle relaxant).
WHITE TO LIGHT BEIGE CRYSTALLINE SOLID
3,5-Xylenol is a crystalline solid.
ChEBI: A member of the class of phenols that phenol substituted by methyl groups at positions 3 and 5.
Colorless to off-white crystalline solid. Odor threshold 1 ppm. Taste threshold 0.001 mg/L.
Air & Water Reactions
3,5-Dimethylphenol is hygroscopic. Insoluble in water.
3,5-Dimethylphenol is incompatible with bases, acid chlorides, acid anhydrides, and oxidizing agents. 3,5-Dimethylphenol corrodes steel, brass, copper, and copper alloys.
Flash point data for 3,5-Dimethylphenol are not available. 3,5-Dimethylphenol is probably combustible.
Poison by intraperitoneal route. Moderately toxic by ingestion. A severe eye irritant. Questionable carcinogen with experimental tumorigenic data. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes. See also other xylenol entries.
3,5-Xylenol is used as an antioxidant, solvent, plasticizer, wetting agent; and in pharmaceuticals. Xylenols are also used in pesticides, fuel, and lubricant additives; as a rubber chemical; in dyestuff manufacture. There are actually six xylenol isomers.
UN 2261 Xylenols, Hazard Class: 6.1; Labels: 6.1-Poisonous materials.
Purify it as for 3,4-dimethylphenol. [Beilstein 6 IV 3141.]
A weak organic acid. Incompatible with oxidizers (chlorates, nitrates, peroxides, permanganates, perchlorates, chlorine, bromine, fluorine, etc.); contact may cause fires or explosions. Keep away from alkaline materials, strong bases, strong acids, oxoacids, and epoxides.
Dissolve or mix the material with a combustible solvent and burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber. All federal, state, and local environmental regulations must be observed.
