Is P-cresol an acid or base?

m-cresol is more acidic compared to p-cresol. This is completely true in water (the p-cresol is 10.3 and pKa of m-cresol is 10.1), and it is also completely true in the gas-phase with the difference in the acidity of ca 0.7 kcal/mol.

Is P-cresol an alkoxide?

What is the density of P-cresol?

1.03 g/cm³

Is P-cresol acidic?

The structure p-cresol shows the positive inductive effect as well as the hyperconjugation effect. The hyperconjugation effect lowers the acidity of the compound. The o-cresol is the least acidic as the electron-donating group is very near to the anion which will be formed after donating hydrogen which destabilizes it.

What is the Iupac name of M cresol?

What is the function of resorcinol?

Resorcinol is a 1,3-isomer (or meta-isomer) of benzenediol with the formula C6H4(OH)2. It is used as an antiseptic and disinfectant in topical pharmaceutical products in the treatment of skin disorders and infections such as acne, seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, corns, calluses, and warts.

What is the pKa of 4-Methylphenol?

p-Cresol, also known as 4-hydroxytoluene or 4-methylphenol, belongs to the class of organic compounds known as para cresols….Structure for FDB008789 (4-Methylphenol)
