(C6H50H and related compounds) A water-soluble, poisonous chemical group, derived from coal tar and used as disinfectants and in chemical work.
Phenols are compounds having one or more hydroxy groups attached to benzene or other arene ring.
Organic compounds that include, as part of their chemical structures, an unsaturated ring with an -OH group on it
A class of organic compounds containing an aromatic ring and hydroxyl groups. Phenols are used in the production of phenolic resins, germicides, herbicides, fungicides, pharmaceuticals, dyes, plastics, and explosives.
Group of organic compounds, soluble in water, capable of affecting the taste of drinking water.
A group of SOCs used in the synthesis of a wide variety of chemicals and a ubiquitous class of pollutants.
Organic compounds that are byproducts of petroleum refining, tanning, and textile, dye, and resin manufacturing. Low concentrations cause taste and odor problems in water; higher concentrations can kill aquatic life and humans.
Compounds that have one or more hydroxyl groups attached to an aromatic ring.
Organic compounds that are responsible for the odors produced by most trees and flowers as well as many of the aromas in wines. Phenols have aromatic ring structures very similar to benzene, with the addition of a hydroxl (-OH) group sticking off of the ring structure. Aromatic ring structures are simply rings of carbon atoms that contain a mixture of single and double bonds between the atoms. Hydrogen atoms stick out from the rings as well other molecular groups, such as the hydroxl groups that characterize phenols.
Compounds linked to benzene
are chemical substances derived from aromatic hydrocarbons, which are generally of industrial origin (they are used to manufacture rubber, plastic, pharmaceutical products etc). They smell and taste very unpleasant.
Hydrocarbons used to make resins and glues. Very toxic and may outgas.
In organic chemistry, phenols, sometimes called phenolics, are a class of chemical compounds consisting of a hydroxyl group (-OH) attached to an aromatic hydrocarbon group. The simplest of the class is phenol (C6H5OH).
