Problem 22.39

Phenol is the starting material for the synthesis of 2,3,4,5,6-pentachlorophenol, knownalternatively as pentachlorophenol, or more simply as penta. At one time, penta waswidely used as a wood preservative for decks, siding, and outdoor wood furniture. Drawthe structural formula for pentachlorophenol and describe its synthesis from phenol.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Reduction Potentials & Electrochemical Cells electrochemical cell - device capable of either generating electrical energy from • chemical reactions (voltaic or galvanic cell) or facilitating chemical reactions through introduction of electrical energy (electrolytic cell) • electrons flow from oxidation side of cell to reduction side through wire • salt bridge is used to allow ions to flow between cells and balance charge • cathode - negatively charged electrode • anode - positively charged electrode • standard reduction potential - measure (in volts) of tendency for chemical species to be reduced when all elements are in their standard states • the more positive the reduction potential, the more likely a species will be reduced • the more
