Abstract: The present essay represents an effort to focus on some aspects of the bonding abilities of phenol throughout a theoretical study of the three potential energy surfaces of the interaction of phenol with the HCN, HOCN, and HF (including HCl) molecules. The studied surfaces clearly demonstrate the existence of the alternative bonding of phenol via its pi cloud, largerly localized in the vicinity of the para carbon atom, leading to the formation of metastable pi hydrogen-bonded complexes with sufficiently large lifetimes comparable with experimental timescales.
