What is the meaning of the term tertiary (3° ) when it is used to classify alcohols?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The meaning of the term tertiary used in the classification of alcohols should be determined.

Concept Introduction:

Alcohols are an organic compound which has a functional group −OH having a carbon bond.

Explanation of Solution

Based on the presence of one, two or more hydroxyl group −OH the alcohols are classified. These hydroxyl groups are attached to the atoms of carbon and they are the derivatives of water in which the hydrogen atom is replaced by the group of alkyls. There are different structures and forms of alcohols.

These alcohols are of three types based on the hydroxyl group and the location of these group gives the physical and chemical properties of a compound. They are namely the primary, secondary and tertiary alcohols...
