Chemistry - Alcohols containing four carbon atoms

Alcohols containing four carbon atoms

There are significant differences in the chemical behavior of the alcohols
represented, depending on the _environment of the carbon atom_ to which the
-OH group is bonded.

If the carbon atom is bonded to only _one _other C atom, the alcohol is a
_primary _alcohol.

If the carbon atom is bonded to _two _other carbon atoms, the alcohol is a
_secondary _alcohol.

If the carbon atom is bonded to _three _other carbon atoms, the alcohol is
a _tertiary _alcohol.

Primary and secondary alcohols give significantly different products on
oxidation while tertiary alcohols can be difficult to oxidise.
