Alcohol Information




What is Alcohol:

An alcohol is any organic molecule in which the hydroxyl functional group (OH) is bound to a carbon. An important class of alcohols, of which methanol and ethanol are the simplest members, includes all compounds with the general formula CnH2n+1OH. Simple alcohols are found widely in nature. Ethanol is most prominent because it is the product of fermentation, a major energy-producing pathway. Some are only formed in trace amounts. More complex alcohols are pervasive, as manifested in sugars, amino acids, and fatty acids.

Health Risks:

Simple alcohols have low acute toxicities. Doses of several milliliters are tolerated. Methanol and ethanol are less acutely toxic. For pentanols, hexanols, octanols, and longer alcohols the median lethal dose (LD50) ranges from 2-5 g/kg. All alcohols are mild skin irritants.
