Which reagent will convert RCOR' group into RR'C(C6H5)OH?

Phenyl magnesium bromide converts RCOR’ group into RR’C(C6H5)OH.

All three types of alcohol (primary, secondary and tertiary) can be prepared from the Grignard reagents by interaction with suitable carbonyl compounds.

Organolithium or Grignard reagents react to alcohol in aldehydes or ketones with the carbonyl group C = O. Carbonyl substituents determine the essence of the alcohol component. The acidic work-up transforms the intermediate metal alkoxide salt into the desired alcohol by means of a simple acid-base reaction.
