The chemical formula is C6H5OH. The physical state is solid. Colorless. It has a characteristic smell. Soluble in water, alcohol, chloroform, ether, glycerol and essential oils. Phenol is generally colorless liquid and solid when in pure state, but due to air oxidation, they take a red color over time. Boiling points are higher than similar molecular weight cyclic alcohols.
Production and Reactions
Coal is also available. It is obtained by treating sodium hydroxide with chlorine benzene.
C6H5 - C C6H5ONa C6H55 OH
It is also used in detergent manufacturing. Most of phenol consumption is used in nylon production. Phenol, aspirin and some other drugs, weed and pesticides and plastics can be obtained.
