In chemistry, an alcohol is any organic compound in which a hydroxyl group
(-OH) is bound to a carbon atom of an alkyl or substituted alkyl group. An
important group of acohols is formed by the simple acyclic alcohols, the
general formula for which is CnH2n+1OH. Of those, ethanol (C2H5OH) is the
type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages, and in common speech the word
alcohol means, specifically, ethanol.
