I read that to test for the presence of Phenol Groups in an Organic Compound Aniline Dye Test can be performed. If the solution has phenol present it gives a red or orange precipitate to confirm the presence, however as a side note it was mentioned that this test is applicable for detection of small quantities of phenols which have a free para position why is it so?
