Name EC / List no. CAS no. Association
Creosote
The distillate of coal tar produced by the high temperature carbonization of bituminous coal. It consists primarily of aromatic hydrocarbons, tar acids and tar bases.
232-287-5 8001-58-9 Expert judgement
Creosote, wood
A complex combination of phenols obtained as a distillate from wood tar.
232-419-1 8021-39-4 Expert judgement
Distillates (coal tar), naphthalene oils
A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained by the distillation of coal tar. It consists primarily of aromatic and other hydrocarbons, phenolic compounds and aromatic nitrogen compounds and distills in the approximate range of 200°C to 250°C (392°F to 482°F).
283-484-8 84650-04-4 Expert judgement
Anthracene oil
A complex combination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons obtained from coal tar having an approximate distillation range of 300°C to 400°C (572°F to 752°F). Composed primarily of phenanthrene, anthracene and carbazole.
292-602-7 90640-80-5 Expert judgement
Distillates (coal tar), upper
The distillate from coal tar having an approximate distillation range of 220°C to 450°C (428°F to 842°F). Composed primarily of three to four membered condensed ring aromatic hydrocarbons and other hydrocarbons.
266-026-1 65996-91-0 Expert judgement
Extract residues (coal), low temp. coal tar alk.
The residue from low temperature coal tar oils after an alkaline wash, such as aqueous sodium hydroxide, to remove crude coal tar acids. Composed primarily of hydrocarbons and aromatic nitrogen bases.
310-191-5 122384-78-5 Expert judgement
Creosote oil
A complex combination of hydrocarbons obtained by the distillation of coal tar. It consists primarily of aromatic hydrocarbons and may contain appreciable quantities of tar acids and tar bases. It distills at the approximate range of 200°C to 325°C (392°F to 617°F).
263-047-8 61789-28-4 Expert judgement
Tar acids, coal, crude
The reaction product obtained by neutralizing coal tar oil alkaline extract with an acidic solution, such as aqueous sulfuric acid, or gaseous carbon dioxide, to obtain the free acids. Composed primarily of tar acids such as phenol, cresols, and xylenols.
266-019-3 65996-85-2 Expert judgement
Creosote oil, acenaphthene fraction
A complex combination of hydrocarbons produced by the distillation of coal tar and boiling in the range of approximately 240°C to 280°C (464°F to 536°F). Composed primarily of acenaphthene, naphthalene and alkyl naphthalene.
