These contain the group, or radical OH, hydroxyl, once or oftener.
This would then lead to curious conclusions concerning the hydroxyl group.
For instance, an alkyl may be substituted for the hydroxyl hydrogen in an alcohol molecule, when an ether results.
First, the hydrogen is displaced by the chlorine: then the chlorine is turned out and its place taken by the hydroxyl.
The alkaline, or soapy taste, is the perception of hydroxyl radicles charged with negative electricity.
Those four atoms are called the methyl group, and a methyl group combined with a hydroxyl group forms methyl alcohol.
The nitro group behaves very similarly to the hydroxyl group.
The hydrion and hydroxyl ion are particularly liable to such adsorption.
The basic character of a solution is determined by the presence of the hydroxyl radical OH-.
The water being present in excess, the hydrogen and hydroxyl are re-formed at once and therefore are set free continuously.
hydroxyl hy·drox·yl (hī-drŏk'sĭl)
The univalent radical or group OH, a characteristic component of bases, certain acids, phenols, alcohols, carboxylic and sulfonic acids, and amphoteric compounds.
