a linear and/or branched alkyl chain with a carbon number 
of 7 covalently bound predominantly in position 4 to phenol, covering also UVCB- and well-defined substances which include any of the individual isomers or a combination thereof]

3) 4-tert-butylphenol

4) Benzene-1,2,4-tricarboxylic acid 1,2-anhydride (trimellitic anhydride)
