Resorcinol is an aromatic alcohol used to precursor other chemicals, such as phenolic resins and rubber accelerators. It has been used in many applications, such as an anti-fungal agent and an additive to plastics. 

It can be applied topically or taken internally to treat fungal diseases like candidiasis and onychomycosis (nail fungus).  It is also used as a food additive because of its ability to prevent bacterial growth due to its low pH.It is often used in combination with mercaptans for its pleasant odour.

It is used in producing dyes, some kinds of varnish and lacquers, pyrotechnics, some kinds of rubber (e.g., SBR), some pharmaceuticals (e.g., bisacodyl), cross-linking agents for cellulosic fibres, photochromism, some antiseptics (methyl, propyl, and butyl), some fungicides, and antioxidant agents. 


Resorcinol is a compound widely used for the production of bisphenol-A (BPA) and other chemicals. The global demand for it is driven by the growing demand in resins, paints and coatings, adhesives, plastics and polymers, chemicals and solvents markets.

The dominant applications of the product are in construction coating, including paint, architectural coating systems such as pre-stain treatments and primers; automotive industry coatings; plywood painting; tarpaulins manufacturing; protective packaging materials manufacturing. 

It has antifungal properties, which is why it is added as an additive to topical products such as creams and ointments. 

When dissolved in water, it forms an alkaline solution called "hydroquinone", which has many applications, including in photography and as a developer in silver print development.  It is also used as an antiseptic and disinfectant.
