Name EC / List no. CAS no. Association
Creosote oil, high-boiling distillate
The high-boiling distillation fraction obtained from the high temperature carbonization of bituminous coal which is further refined to remove excess crystalline salts. It consists primarily of creosote oil with some of the normal polynuclear aromatic salts, which are components of coal tar distillates, removed. It is crystal free at approximately 5°C (41°F).

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.

Creosote, wood
A complex combination of phenols obtained as a distillate from wood tar.
232-419-1 8021-39-4 Expert judgement (ECHA)
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 (ECHA)
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.

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 (ECHA)
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).

Anthracene oil 292-602-7 90640-80-5 Expert judgement (ECHA)
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.
