Benzene vs. Phenol

Postby Sanjay_Kumar_2J » Sun Mar 19, 2017 12:46 am

Why is it that sometimes the name is benzene (2.43 (d) in green course reader) while other times the same cyclohexene is called phenol (2.41 in green course reader)?

phenol is benzene with an -oh group attached to it, but I don't think we have to know phenol for the final.
