Can someone please send me a link or tell me what happens when the following reactions takes place? As in...the colour change (if any) and any other observations
* Phenol in water
* Phenol in excess water
* Phenol in hot water
* and then Phenol in hot water and then allowed to cool
* phenol, universal indicator and water
Phenol + Water=> phenoxide ion
other than that I'm not sure about the others.
phenol in excess water=> phenol reforms after the production of the phenoxide ion.
Phenol is moderately soluble in water at about 8 g /100 ml.
It forms clear colourless solutions in water.
For the last one the pKa of phenol is about 10.
