Cresols are monomethyl phenols distinguished by one methyl ion and one hydroxide ion being
attached to a ring of carbon atoms linked by alternate single and double bonds. The hydroxide ion is
always present at the first carbon atom in cresols; the position of the methyl ion determines the type
of cresol. Cresols containing a methyl ion at the second carbon atom are known as ortho-cresol, ocresol, or 2-methylphenol, the ones containing a methyl ion at the third carbon atom are known as mcresol, meta-cresol, or 3-methylphenol, and cresols with a methyl.
