PHENOL (carbolic acid) PROJECT HELP

Hi I am doing PHENOL for a project and related it to a product called carbolic soap. Can Someone help me explain how it's used in Carbolic soap and what properties of PHENOL make it a good molecule to use in Carbolic soap. I know ITS A DISINFECTANT but how does phenol's structure play a role in this?

Thank you so much for any responses

Using search is the way to get the information you need ... I put "what is carbolic soap" in google search ... many pages , one from wikipedia ...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbolic_soap ....

also search ..."what is phenol" .... "why is phenol a disinfectant"
