Reactive Group Datasheet

Phenolic Salts

What are reactive groups?

Reactive groups are categories of chemicals that typically react in similar ways because they are similar in their chemical structure. Each substance with a chemical datasheet has been assigned to one or more reactive groups, and CAMEO Chemicals uses the reactive group assignments to make its reactivity predictions. More info about reactivity predictions...

If you can't find a chemical in the database--but you know what reactive group it belongs in--you can add the reactive group to MyChemicals instead in order to see the reactivity predictions.

There are 29 chemical datasheets assigned to this reactive group.


Most are combustible.
Phenolic salts react with strong oxidizers, isocyanates (urethane reaction), and can catalyze ring opening in epoxides, as well as help initiate polymerization reactions in aldehydes. In particular, sodium phenolate is highly susceptible to oxidation at or near ambient temperature.
Many have moderate toxicity, and most are slightly less toxic than the parent phenol.
Other Characteristics
Metal salts of phenol and cresol. Sodium phenolate is used as an antiseptic and chemical synthesis.
Lead mononitroresorcinate, potassium 2-benzyl-4-chlorophenate, sodium pentachlorophenate, zirconium picramate. sodium phenolate, potassium phenolate.
