Re: [Histonet] phenol substitute

From:Rene J Buesa

If you "travel back in time" and realize that when Kaiser developed his formula it was 1880, on those years (after Lister) the "universal" antimicrobial was phenol (or "phenic acid").
  The posting was about the formula composition, not about if phenol should be avoided TODAY or not.

got me to wondering what the purpose of phenol is, and what might be a 
rational and less toxic substitute. Is is just antimicrobial?
