Selected aromatic structural isomers of molecular formula C7H8O (Mr = 108)

(1) structural formula 2-methylphenol (o-methylphenol ortho-cresol) molecular structure advanced organic chemistry 2-methylphenol (o-methylphenol, ortho-cresol)

 (2) structural formula 3-methylphenol (m-methylphenol meta-cresol) molecular structure advanced organic chemistry 3-methylphenol (m-methylphenol, meta-cresol),

(3) structural formula 4-methylphenol (p-methylphenol para-cresol) molecular structure advanced organic chemistry 4-methylphenol (p-methylphenol, para-cresol)

If the OH is not attached to a benzene ring you get an aliphatic alcohol which is isomeric with phenols or an ether.

(4) (c) doc b phenylmethanol (old name 'benzyl alcohol') is a primary aliphatic alcohol

which is isomeric with methylphenols and the ether (5) (c) doc b methoxybenzene (anisole).
