"Exposure may result in death and the effects may be delayed."[edit]

What does that even mean? This has to be the most poorly-phrased sentence on this page.

Who knows? I tried to repair. Thanks for pointing out the problem. --Smokefoot (talk) 22:30, 15 October 2012 (UTC)

Rename to Phenol (molecule)[edit]

I propose renaming this article to Phenol (molecule). This is to avoid confusion with the class of organic compounds, phenols. You can see in What links here that a lot of the pages listed there actually refer to the group of molecules, not the phenol molecule itself. This is because many editors put this markup:

... the group of [[phenol]]s

They intend to link to the phenols article, but instead end up linking to the phenol article, which is the wrong one.

Maybe a disambiguation page could also be created at Phenol? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Llightex (talkcontribs)

If the problem is that some incoming links point to the wrong article, the best solution is to fix the incoming links. The solution you suggest, renaming this article and making this title a disambiguation page, will just make the problem worse: instead of some of the incoming links needing to be fixed, all of the incoming links will need to be fixed because they will all need to be disambiguated. -- Ed (Edgar181) 21:28, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

Experts: Ester-phenols in Reconquista River article?[edit]

The Reconquista River article mentions ester-phenol as a pollutant and links the second Alf of the word to this article.

Is this valid terminology? Is it an important distinction, ester-phenols vs. phenols? Or is it a typo and should be two separate terms? Thanks! Geekdiva (talk) 21:52, 30 April 2016 (UTC)
