Homework Help: Naming benzene compounds

  1. Sep 23, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    There's a benzene ring with both OH and H attatched to the same carbon atom on the benzene ring and I was wondering what this molecule would be called.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I thought it might be an acid group attached to the benzene ring but wouldn't there be a C attatched to the benzene ring as well to make benzoic acid?

    Sorry this is all rubbish! I didn't even have a benzene ring but I'm able to name what I did have!
