will a neutralization reaction occur between phenol and sodium hydroxide
if pKa of phenol is 10, and pka of water is 15.76
Yes, a neutralization reaction is a reaction between an acid and a base. Phenol is carbolic acid, and any type of hydroxide is a base.
equilibrium favors the weaker acid so it will shift to make more water
