Creosote is colorless (sometimes yellowish or yellow-green), flammable, hardly soluble in water, oily liquid with a strong odor and a burning taste, obtained from wood and coal tar. It is a mixture of phenols, mainly guaiacol and cresols.
Wood creosote is used for tuberculosis and as an antiseptic. Coal creosote is used for preserving wood (impregnating sleepers, wooden supports, etc.) and protecting it from decay, in the production of artificial resins, and also as a flotation agent for ore dressing (flotation).
The characteristic smell of railway sleepers (as well as the smell in the subway) is associated with their impregnation with creosote. Sometimes such sleepers (usually used for industrial use, that is, written off as unnecessary or due to the expiration of their service life, but in good condition) are used by individuals in the construction of not only temporary foundations and light buildings, such as sheds and garages, but also for construction of residential buildings or summer cottages, thereby creating a serious danger to the health of people living in them, especially children.
