Answer :

The conversion of Phenol from Cumene requires the air oxidation of cumene.

The air oxidation of cumene (isopropyl benzene) leads to the production of both phenol and acetone (costlier than phenol).



The air oxidation of cumene gives cumene hydro peroxide as an intermediate which on further hydrolysis (H3O+) gives phenol and acetone.
