Question

Phenol undergoes electrophilic substitution more easily than benzene because :


A
OH group exhibits +M effect and hence increases the electron density on the o- and p-positions.
loader
B
oxocation is more stable than the carbocation.
loader
C
both (a) and (b)
loader
D
OH group exhibits acidic character
loader

Solution

The correct option is C both $$(a)$$ and $$(b)$$
High stability of oxonium ion (oxocation) is because here every atom (except $$H$$) has a complete octet of electrons, while in carbocations, carbon bearing positive charge is having six electrons.
