Properties of Alcohols

Table of Contents
No headers

Alcohols are some of the most important molecules in organic chemistry. They can be prepared from and converted into many different types of compounds. Alcohols contain the hydroxy functional group (-OH), bonded to a carbon atom of an alkyl or substituted alkyl group. The hydroxy functional group strongly contributes to the physical properties of alcohols.
