Is Ph an element?
« on: July 29, 2009, 11:25:12 PM »
This is the second time I've seen this Ph thing.

What is Ph in this structure?



Is this what it is referring to?

Phenyl substituent, yes.  It can also be represented as phi

Ph is a benzene ring or as you know a phenyl ring,  sometimes you will even see it as Ar (abbreviation for Aryl, where Aryl is an aromatic ring and most times Phenyl)

Ph- is C6H5- or phenyl, Ar- is most of the times substituted phenyl.
