can you use formic acid and palladium to reduce trichloro phenol (TCP) to phenol?

Very seriously doubt it, but why do you care? Phenol itself is cheap as dirt. What is phenol good for anyway? Besides producing painful blisters and stinking like hell that is.

Yes, there are some refs about this sort of dehalogenation, using Pd/C and ammonium formate (?). Don't remember them right now, but I might have a look if you tell me what this might be good for. As beagle said, phenol is not that hard to get to justify its synthesis.

Some phenols are OTC -- hydroquinone, vanillin, etc. If memory serves, I think even phenol itself is available. I'm really curious now. What the hell would someone want phenol for?

I have been the victim of a phenol spill. My arms were splashed and both forearms swelled up, went red and the skin flaked. My BP down and my pulse went waaayy up.
I spent 3 days in hospital. Be careful with phenol. It's fucking nasty stuff. Listen you now te me!
