Analytical Reagent Grade

Phenol, also known as Carbolic acid, Hydroxybenzene, Phenylic Acid, has the chemical formula C6H5OH. Phenol Crystals appear as hygroscopic colorless-to-white crystalline solid with a sweet odor. It evaporates more slowly than water and is slightly soluble in Water at ambient conditions. It is prepared by dissolving 3 g Phenol crystals in 100 mL distilled water. The Analytical Reagent Grade is generally equivalent to the American Chemical Society (ACS) Grade and is acceptable for use in analytical applications and research laboratories. Lab Alley is selling its premium quality Phenol, 3% solution, Analytical Reagent Grade online at in the United States of America (USA) and highly recommends using it in research/biochemical labs for reliable and consistent results.

Inactivation Of Influenza Virus By Mild Antiseptics 

A number of antiseptics were tested for their inactivating effect upon the virus of influenza during a brief period of exposure. This was accomplished by preparing mixtures of the antiseptics and virus, allowing them to remain in contact for 3 minutes, diluting the mixtures to the point where they would not be toxic for chick embryos and then injecting the material into embryonated eggs. Survival of the embryos indicated inactivation of the virus. The following preparations were found to inactivate the virus in 3 minutes or less: phenol,%; tincture of iodine, U.S.P. XII, 0.1%; Lugol's solution, U.S.P. XII, 1%; mercuric chloride, 1:1000; potassium permanganate, 1:1000; copper sulfate, 1%; propylene glycol, 90%; liquor antisepticus, N.F. VII, 80%. Read more here.
