NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Chemistry chapter 11 Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers

In chapter-11, we will study the chemistry of three classes of compounds which are alcohols, phenols and ethers and also discuss the reactions involved in the preparation of alcohols, phenols and ethers. In this chapter, there are a total of 33 questions in the exercise. The NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Chemistry chapter 11 Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers are prepared by our subject experts. These NCERT solutions help students in their preparation of the CBSE Board exam and in the competitive exams like JEE Mains, NEET etc.

NCERT Class 12 Chemistry chapter 11 Alcohols, Phenols and Ethers starts with the IUPAC nomenclature of alcohols, phenols and ethers followed by the topics:- reactions involved in the preparation of alcohols from aldehydes, ketones, alkenes and carboxylic acids and discuss reactions involved in the preparation of phenols from benzene sulphonic acids, haloarenes,cumene and diazonium salts and also discuss reactions involved in the preparation of ethers from alcohols and alkyl halides.

Alcohols are the basic compound for the formation of detergents, phenols are the basic compound for the formation of antiseptics and ethers is the basic compound for the formation of fragrances. Alcohols are formed when an H-atom in a hydrocarbon, aliphatic is replaced by -OH group, phenols are formed when an H-atom in a hydrocarbon, aromatic is replaced by -OH group and ethers are formed by the substitution of a H-atom in a hydrocarbon by an alkoxy(R-O) or by an aryloxy(Ar-O) group. for example dimethyl ether.
