12 phenol‐formaldehyde resins were investigated with regard to the presence of 14 contact sensitizers by using high‐pressure liquid chromatography The allergens consisted of simple methylol phenols, dihydroxydiphenyl methanes, 4,41‐dihydroxy‐(hydroxymethyl)‐diphenyl methanes and 2,4‐dihydroxy‐(hydroxymethyl)‐diphenyl methanes. Four substances, 2,4‐dimethylol phenol, 2,6‐dimethylol phenol, 4,41‐dihydroxydiphenyl methane and 2,41‐dihydroxydiphenyl methane, were isolated from a resol resin and… Expand
Cross‐reaction patterns in patients with contact allergy to simple methylol phenols
TLDR
In patients hypersensitive to P‐F‐R and MPs, it is for diagnostic, therapeutic and preventive reasons necessary to know their cross‐reaction patterns, which this study was therefore designed to investigate. Expand
Contact allergy to 4,4'-dihydroxy-(hydroxymethyl)-diphenyl methanes: sensitizers in a phenol-formaldehyde resin.
TLDR
Three new sensitizers are reported and patients with sensitivity to P-F-R-2 reacted to at least one of these compounds, which were identified by mass spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Expand
Contact allergy to phenol‐formaldehyde resins
TLDR
A battery of phenol‐formaldehyde resins should be used for screening purposes, since patch testing with the paratertiary‐butyl phenol-formaldehyde resin is not sufficient to identify patients with contact allergy to phenol •formaldehyde Resins. Expand
Patch testing with a mixture of 2 phenol‐formaldehyde resins
TLDR
Patch testing with a mixture of both resins was not as good as patch testing with the 2 resins; separately, it was better than testing only with PTBP‐F‐R, since 1.6 times more patients with contact allergy to phenol‐formaldehyde resins were still diagnosed. Expand
The effect of free dihydroxydiphenylmethanes on the thermal stability of novolac resin
Abstract Phenolic resins (PRs) play an important role in aerospace due to their low cost, outstanding chemical resistance, mechanical properties, thermal properties and ablative properties. However,Expand

During December 1985 and February 1986, an investigation was carried out into skin diseases among workers in a plant producing decorative equipment built of paper sheets impregnated with resol resinsExpand
Multicenter Patch Testing With a Resol Resin Based on Phenol and Formaldehyde Within the International Contact Dermatitis Research Group
TLDR
The contact allergy frequency in the tested population (1.2%) merits its inclusion into the international baseline series and possibly also into other baseline series after appropriate investigations. Expand

TLDR
PFR-2 was demonstrated to be a good tracer of patients with contact allergy to PFR and the ICDRG recommends one PFR novolak (P FR-8) and one P FR resol (Pfr-7) for additional testing. Expand
Occupational airborne allergic contact dermatitis from medium‐density fibreboard containing phenol‐formaldehyde resin‐2 (PFR‐2)
TLDR
A 49-year-old carpenter with no prior history of skin disease presented with an 8-week history of an itchy erythematous vesicular rash involving his face and neck has had no further recurrences of eczema since avoiding MDF at work. Expand
Physicochemical Methods for Detection of Occupational Contact Allergens
Many allergens are widely used in both environmental and occupational products. In many cases, it is difficult to know all the ingredients of a product since most products are not sufficientlyExpand

TLDR
The sensitizing capacities of 2‐ methylol phenol (2‐MP), 4‐methylolphenol (4‐MP) and 2,4,6‐inmethylol phenols (2,4‐6‐ MP) were investigated with the guinea pig maximization test in order to assess and compare the degree of the sensitization capacities of these chemically related substances. Expand

TLDR
A particular phenol-formaldehyde resin of the resol type (P-F-R-2) was shown to be a good marker for patients with contact allergy and both mass-spectrometry and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometry identified the compounds to be 2,4'-dihydroxy-3,3'-di-(hydroxymethyl)-diphenyl methane and 2,2'-H-3',5'-HPM.

Because p-tert.-butylphenolformaldehyde-free shoes are unavailable in the Dutch market, shoes made of alternative materials for 13 patients reacting to this resin were made, and only one patient reacted to virtually all materials tested. Expand
