Is there a list of primary, secondary and tertiary alcohols examples anywhere?

    $\begingroup$ There can be infinitely many alcohols of each kind. Why would you want a list anyway? It's like asking for a list of instances you went to the restroom. $\endgroup$ – William R. Ebenezer Jun 22 '19 at 3:49

  • $\begingroup$ I googled it and kept getting results that had nothing to do with Alcohols. $\endgroup$ – OogaBooga420 Jun 22 '19 at 4:47

    $\begingroup$ If you know, what primary, secondary, tertiary alcohol is, you need not a list. If you do not know it, learn it first. $\endgroup$ – Poutnik Jun 22 '19 at 8:15

If there are 2 hydrogen atoms connected to the carbinol carbon(the one with a hydroxyl group) its a primary alcohol.

If there is only one hydrogen atom connected to the carbinol carbon it's a secondary alcohol.

The one with no hydrogen atoms is a tertiary alcohol.

Now you can make the list yourself.

    $\begingroup$ Unless the carbon belongs to aromatic system, in such a case we consider it rather as a phenolic than alcoholic group. $\endgroup$ – Poutnik Jun 22 '19 at 8:10
