Resumen Resorcinol is used mainly for the production of adhesives and resins; small amounts may be used in hair dyes and lotions. It is formed in the coking or liquefaction of coal. On the basis of its acute toxicity, it is classified as "harmful" in Germany. There is no evidence of allergic sensitization, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity or reproductive toxicity. The substance does not accumulate in the body or in the environment. While there is no need for further toxicological or ecological research, there is a serious lack of information on exposure due to industrial release of resorcinol.
