Phenol

Carbolic acid, hydroxybenzene, monohydroxybenzene, phenyl alcohol, phenyl hydroxide, phenylic acid

How to detect Phenol

Formula: C6H6O | CAS: 108-95-2

Synonyms: Carbolic acid, hydroxybenzene, monohydroxybenzene, phenyl alcohol, phenyl hydroxide, phenylic acid

Phenol is used primarily as raw materials in the production of phenolic and epoxy resins, nylon and polyamid plastics. It is a precursor for alkyl phenols, used in the manufacture of surfactants.
