Alcohols can be formed by the hydration of alkenes.
Alchols can be dehydrated to form esters or ethers.
Alcohols react with acids to form esters.
Primary alcohols can be partially oxidised in potassium dichromate to form aldehydes and completely oxidised to form carboxylic acids.
Secondary alcohols can be oxidised in potassium dichromate to form ketones.
