How does phenol work against bacteria?

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.

What are identification tests of phenol?

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.

Why are esters compounds also called derivatives of carboxylic acid?

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.
