WHAT DOES PENTANOL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Amyl alcohol

An amyl alcohol is any of 8 alcohols with the formula C5H11OH. A mixture of amyl alcohols can be obtained from fusel alcohol. Amyl alcohol is used as a solvent and in esterfication, for example in the production of amyl acetate. Amyl alcohol as a distinct chemical compound refers to 1-pentanol. Eight structural isomers with molecular formula C5H12O and all alcohols are known: Three of these alcohols, active amyl alcohol, methyl propyl carbinol, and methyl isopropyl carbinol, are optically active, as they contain an asymmetric carbon atom. The most important is isobutyl carbinol, this being the chief constituent of fermentation amyl alcohol, and consequently a constituent of fusel oil. It can be separated from fusel oil by shaking with strong brine solution, separating the oily layer from the brine layer and distilling it, the portion boiling between 125 and 140 °C. being collected. For further purification it may be shaken with hot limewater, the oily layer separated, dried with calcium chloride and fractionated, the fraction boiling between 128 and 132 °C only being collected.

Definition of pentanol in the English dictionary

The definition of pentanol in the dictionary is any of various colourless, odoriferous isomers of C5H11OH.
