Expert Answer:

  • Alcohols and phenols are compounds formed when a hydrogen atom in a hydrocarbon is replaced by –OH group.
  • An alcohol contains one or more hydroxyl (OH) group(s) directly attached to carbon atom(s) of an aliphatic system.
  • A phenol contains –OH group(s) directly attached to carbon atom(s) of an aromatic system (C6H5OH).
