Alcohols are organic compounds in which a hydrogen atom of an aliphatic carbon is replaced with a hydroxyl group. Thus an alcohol molecule consists of two parts; one containing the alkyl group and the other containing functional group hydroxyl group. They have a sweet odour.

The compounds obtained by replacing one hydrogen atom from aliphatic hydrocarbons by a hydroxyl group are alcohols whereas those obtained by replacing hydrogen atoms of aromatic hydrocarbons are phenols. Alcohols occur widely in nature and have various industrial and medicinal applications.

Lower alcohols are liquid at room temperature while higher ones are solid. The boiling point of alcohols is higher than haloalkanes with the same number of carbon atoms. This is due to the fact that alcohols are associated via intermolecular hydrogen bonding.
