I must agree that i gad always assumed that "TCP" was a mixture of chlorinated phenols which contained a large percentage of 2,4,5-Trichlorophenol. The latter is often abbreviated in the scientific literature to 2,4,5-TCP. On looking into it I now find that Rei-cresyl phosphate and tricalcium phosphate are also given the abbreviation TCP. can't seem to find a composition of the present TCP, though EEC regulations mean that it must be written down somewhere. Nowadays they do not allow you to use something unless its composition is known. That is the reason Jeyes fluid is not the same as it used to be - some of its components were found to be rather undesirable.

As far as cat urine is concerned Lyn, the compound is 4-mercapto-4-methyl-2-pentanone, which , when diluted smells like blackcurrant, and is found in blackcurrants.

Mike could you repeat all that in English, I used to love the smell of Jeyes Fluid, it wasn't a bad drink either.
