It is a proposed way of removing phenol from water using mustard greens.
At concentrations above 1% phenol has a significant antibacterial affect. Derivatives of phenol, called phenolics, injure the lipid-containing plasma membranes of bacteria and cause the cell to leak its cellular contents.
You add a specific ionic compound in a solution to determine if phenol or any of its derivatives are present. Ferric chloride (FeCl3) for example, can be used for such tests. Basically, when you mix the solution with the compound, the ions will interact with the phenol molecules or groups, and as a result, the solution will briefly change color. If there is no colour change in the solution, this suggest there is no phenol or phenol-based molecules in your solution.
Not all esters are derivatives of carboxilic acid, they could also be derivatives of phosphoric, sulphuric or carbonic (etc.) acids. However, they are called derivatives of 'X' acid because they are formed by reacting an oxoacid ('X') with a hydroxyl compound (alcohol or phenol). See the related link and related question for more information about how esters are synthesized.
How do you prepare phenol?
Phenol is flammable.
phenol is more acidic.
peeled potatoes should not be exposed to air longer than necessary to avoid oxidation and changing of color of the surface. it contains the polyphenol oxidase which oxidizes catechol to o-diphenol. the phenol oxidases are copper containing proteins which can oxidize phenol derivatives to quinones.
The pKa of phenol is 9.95
Phenol is a weak acid.
What are some examples of Phenol
Phenol is used in the manufacturing of glue, paint, and other products of that sort. It is highly hazardous.
Yes, at room temperature bromine reacts with phenol and forms 2,4,6-tribromo phenol.
Phenol is sparingly soluble in water
Phenol is a solid at r.m.
Both water and phenol are very weak acids. Though phenol is the stronger of the two.
Phenol are acidic due to the formation of stable phenoxide ions in aqueos solution. Phenol itself give pheoxide on dissociation Phenol----------------- Phenoxide- + H+
The conjugate base of cyclohexanol is not as strong as that of the phenol. This is why phenol is considered to be 1,000,000 stronger an acid.
The substitution reactions of phenol are easier than benzene, phenol directly reacts with bromine and gives tribromo phenol while benzene requires FeCl3 as a catalyst and gives mono bromo phenol.
No. Phenol is only soluble in NaOH.
Carbolic acid is another name for Phenol.
