Resorcinol has been known for about 125 years, yet, to the nonspecialist and the general public, the mention of resorcinol does not ring a bell. In part, the reason for this gap in recognition is that there have been only few, relatively short reviews of resorcinol in technical encyclopedias and most chemistry textbooks barely mention it, if at all. Yet, resorcinol is a significant contributor to many technologies, enhancing the properties of a wide range of materials or being the starting material for high-value-added products. Resorcinol plays a significant part in academic research, but rarely is the focus of attention.
