We need to crack on with Friedel Crafts Acylation later in the week but for now we’re sticking with Phenols. Here we explain the reasoning for the directing properties of a hydroxyl group on benzene ring and look at other common reactions of phenols. We look at TBP as a case study and learn some interesting facts about prawns.

Thanks if you helped out at open evening! As you know, I think you’re fabulous!
