phenol is acidic in nature , but not that muchj acidic to react with nahco3 . phenol are weakly acidic in nature . they turn blue litmus red and react with alkali metals and alkalies to form their salt . phenol is weaker than carboxylic acid . hence doesnot react with sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate . the acidic charecter is due to presence of polar o-h group . beacuse of larger electronegativity of oxygen atom , the ectron pair is withdrawn more towards o and h+ ion can be easily released in aqous solution .
