Resorcinol Application Notes Resorcinol is an aromatic alcohol used in large scale processes such as tanning, the manufacture of resins and resin adhesives, the production of hexylresorcinol and p-aminosalicylic acid, and the dyeing and printing of textiles. Resorcinol is used in dermatology research, such as in studies of irritant contact dermatitis. The role of resorcinol in causing cytotoxicity and cytokine release in human epidermal keratinocytes and dermal fibroblasts has been studied. The cytoxicity of resorcinol and other phenolic compounds against the melanotic human melanoma cell lines IRE 1 and IRE 2, and the lymphoma- and leukemia-derived cell lines Raji and K 562 has been studied, at phenolic compound concentrations of 10 µM to 5 mM.The use of resorcinol in a colorimetric assay for sialic acid has been reported.
