A. Ortho/para Bromophenol
B. Meta bromophenol
D. 3,5-O bromophenol
Correct Answer: C. 2,4,5-Tribromophenol
Detail about MCQs
When phenol reacts with an excess of bromine in an aqueous solution, it forms: 2,4,5-Tribromophenol
The excess bromine can lead to multiple bromination reactions on the aromatic ring, resulting in the substitution of three bromine atoms at the 2nd, 4th, and 5th positions of the phenol ring. This compound is known as 2,4,5-tribromophenol.
