Examples of uses of alcohols

I've already written notes on the many uses of alcohols, so below are some links plus a few extra examples.

Use as solvents, fuels and drinks

Alcohols, Ethanol, manufacture, uses - including use as solvent and the alcoholic drinks industry

Biofuels & alternative fuels, hydrogen, biogas, biodiesel

See also Part 4.3 Physical properties including solubility and intermolecular forces

 

Aliphatic alcohol esters

Esters, chemistry and uses including perfumes, solvents

See also Part 4.6 Miscellaneous Reactions carboxylic acids to form esters

 

Miscellaneous

Methanol is highly toxic and added to 'methylated spirits' (industrial spirits solvent, mainly ethanol) so it is unfit for human consumption.

Ethanol is used in antibacterial and antiviral hand gels - hand sanitizers, disinfectant sprays,
