In the experiments where resorcinols were added to semi-coke, the leachate of an 8-week-aged semi-coke sample was collected.
Resorcinols were added to 250 or 500 mL of the reaction medium in glass flasks to a final concentration of 4 mmol/L.
Silica gel TLC was used for the detection and silica gel column chromatography for the preparative separation of resorcinols and their oxidation and coupling products.
More specific respirometric analyses were carried out with phenol, resorcinol and 5-methylresorcinol (hereinafter 5-MR) at concentration of 0.
max] values on added substrate concentrations for phenol, resorcinol and 5-MR are also illustrated in Fig.
Resorcinol and 2-methyl resorcinol were mixed in aqueous solution at 25[degrees]C and pH 8, and formaldehyde was added in an amount that would only partially polymerize the solution.
HPLC was used to evaluate the relative reactivity of resorcinol and 2-methylresorcinol in a solution containing both molecules to which formaldehyde was added.
In the conditions of great excess of methylolphenols the self-condensation of the latter becomes notable and formaldehyde released from dimethylene ether is used also for reaction with resorcinols.
On the basis of molar concentration, the most effective catalyst is zinc acetate, enhancing the co-condensation rate of o- and p-MP with resorcinols equally.
Phenol, p-cresol, resorcinol and 5-methyl resorcinol were most rapidly detoxified, 2,3- and 2,4-dimethyl phenol had moderate detoxification rate, while the slowest was the detoxification of 2,5-dimethyl resorcinol and 3,4-dimethyl phenol [84].
phenol, resorcinol, 5-methylresorcinol, o- and p-cresol at concentrations from 0.
5]/thOD values for phenol, o- and p-cresol and 3,4-dimethylphenol were in the range of those published in literature, but in the case of resorcinol, the value obtained in the present study was somewhat higher [1].
