The hydroxyl radical, as a free radical, is a separate compound and is not part of another compound. However, 'radical' is an archaic term for 'group', and when used in this context, the hydroxyl group can be found in alcohols e.g. ethanol.

I believe that what you have in mind is the phosphate radical, PO4. While this radical appears in many compounds, it is not itself a compound.
