The following reaction represent a propsed reaction mechanism for the formation C(C6H5)3OH from C(C6H3)3Cl.

Step 1: C(C6H5)3Cl--> C(C6H5)3^+ + Cl-
Step 2: C(C6H5)3^+ + OH- --> C(C6H5)3OH

What are the intermediate product(s) of the net reaction? Explain your answer.

What I have as the equation for the net reaction is:
C(C6H5)3Cl + OH- --> C(C6H5)3OH + Cl-

So would the intermediate products be C(C6H5)3OH and Cl- because they are the products of the net reaction?
