Chapter 24: Phenols

Phenol is derived from the old name for benzene (phene), to include the suffix that indicates it possesses a hydroxyl group (ol).
CAUTION: The word phenol (C6H5-OH) is often confused with phenyl (C6H5-).
Phenols can be obtained via substitution reactions, with the hydrolysis of diazonium salts being the most important laboratory method.
Phenols are acidic and are important intermediates in the preparation of aryl ethers, C6H5-OR
