Hi Ravikumar,


 


No. That is not true.


They can show other isomerism as Geometrical Isomerism and Optical isomerism as well.

The isomerism is conformational, optical, and nuclear(chain) ones.

why do phenols have more boiling point than alcohals of comparable molecular mass
 
 
Unlike in alcohols, the -OH group is attached to an sp^2 hybrid carbon in phenols which is more electronegative than an sp^3 hybrid carbon in alcohols; this makes -O-H bond more polar and...
