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. The general
formula for a simple acyclic alcohol is CnH2n+1OH.
In general usage, alcohol refers almost always
to ethanol, also known as grain alcohol, a strongly-smelling,
colorless, volatile liquid formed by the fermentation
Alcohols are in wide use in industry and
science as reagents, solvents, and fuels. Ethanol and
methanol can be made to burn more cleanly than gasoline
or diesel. Because of its low toxicity and ability to
dissolve non-polar substances, ethanol is often used
as a solvent in medical drugs, perfumes, and vegetable
essences such as vanilla.
Ethanol is commonly used in beverages to
promote flavor, reduce social inhibitions, or induce
a euphoric intoxication commonly known as "drunkenness"
or "being drunk." The consumption of ethanol
is illegal in some countries, mainly Islamic.
