Physical Properties.- Creosotal occurs in the form of
a viscid oily liquid, without odor. It becomes quite fluid
on the application of moderate heat, and has a sp. gr. of
1.165 at 590 F. (15 C.).
Solubility.-- Creosote carbonate is soluble in alcohol,
ether, chloroform, and benzene; it is insoluble in water.
Physiological Action.-When ingested by the stom-
ach, even in large doses, this drug exercises no delete-
rious influence. It is said to be decomposed in the
intestines into its components, creosote and carbon
dioxide. The former constituent is found in the urine
