  • organic chemistry
    • alcohol
      • -OH
      • burn in air to produce co2 and water
      • first 4
        • methanol
        • ethanol
        • propanol
        • butanol
      • uses:
        • solvents
        • drinks
        • fuels
    • esters
      • -COO-
      • mixture of the two other groups
        • writen as
          • alcohol carboxylic acid+oate
            • example,  methyl propanoate
      • uses:
        • esters often smell nice, so are used perfumes and flavourings
    • carboxylic acids
      • -COOH
      • react like all other acids
        • carboxylic acid+metal
          • =salt+ hydrogen
        • carboxylic acid+ carbonate
          • =salt+co2
        • carboxylic acid+alkali
          • =salt+water
      • used in industry to make soaps and esters
      • all end in oic
        • e.g, ethanoic, methanoic
