Phenols And Derivatives
One of the most well known groups of aromatic organic compounds, all phenols and their derivatives, have at their core, a benzene ring linked to a hydroxyl group by a single bond, making up its signature structure. Primarily phenols are extracted from tar, and at industrial levels, Cumene process accounts for more than 95% of total phenol and its derivative's production, and in the latter case, Acetone is generated as a by-product. Phenol and their derivatives boast a particularly wide usage scenario, with some major areas of application being plastic industry, pharmaceuticals and laboratory tests/biological reactions usually dealing with the domain of molecular biology.
