Escherichia coli K-12 substr. MG1655 Compound Class: an alcohol

Synonyms: an alcohol, alcohol, ROH

Summary:
Alcohols are organic compounds in which the hydroxyl functional group (-OH) is bound to a carbon atom. Alcohols are classified into primary, secondary, and tertiary, based upon the number of carbon atoms connected to the carbon atom that bears the hydroxyl group. The primary alcohols have general formulas RCH2OH; secondary alcohols are RR'CHOH; and tertiary ones are RR'R"COH, where R, R', and R" stand for alkyl groups.

Alcohols are also classified based on the length of the alkyl groups.

Short-chain alcohols have alkyl chains of 1- 3 carbons.

Medium-chain alcohols have alkyl chains of 4-7 carbons.

Long-chain alcohols (also known as fatty alcohols) have alkyl chains of 8-21 carbons.

Very long-chain alcohols have alkyl chains of 22 carbons or longer.

Child Classes: a cyclic alcohol (9) , a diol (13) , a galactinol-type-disaccharide-sugar-alcohol (0) , a long-chain alcohol (2) , a medium-chain alcohol (1) , a monoterpenol (1) , a primary alcohol (4) , a secondary alcohol (0) , a sesquiterpenol (0) , a short-chain alcohol (3) , a sugar alcohol (16) , a tertiary alcohol (0) , a very long chain alcohol (0) , an amino alcohol (0)
