What do you understand by resin? Wood was first liquefied in the presence of phenol by using an acid catalyst to produce a phenolated wood, and after the liquefaction, formalin (i.e., formaldehyde aqueous solution) was added to conduct a cocondensation reaction for converting the remaining nonreacted phenol into … The carboxylic acids may optionally be hydroxylated mono- and dicarboxylic acids. The alkali solution is usually regarded as a worthless stream, from which the organic substances present as well as the transition metal or boron have to be removed on account of environmental requirements.
