What is alcohol changed to during oxidation?
When alcohol is oxidized it becomes acetaldehyde, which is toxic. The acetaldehyde quickly become acetate, and then finally carbon dioxide and water.
Oxidation of a primary alcohol results in an Aldahyde, 2 molecules of primary alcohol oxidized results in an ether, oxidization of a secondary alcohol end product is a ketone.

Burning is a combustion reaction, which is a type of oxidation-reduction reaction. During combustion, carbon is oxidized. This means that it oxidation state becomes more positive, since it loses electrons during the reaction (it is bonded to the more electronegative oxygen after the reaction, whereas it was bonded to less electronegative hydrogen before the reaction).
no alcohol can not mix more easily with fats than water. this happens because in water- alcohol mixing hydrogen bonding is involved which mixes water readily with alcohol....while during fats- alcohol mixing there is no involvement of hydrogen bonding or any other stronger bonding due to oxidation which causes fats to lose its effective number of hydrogen.
A secondary alcohol undergoes oxidation to yield a ketone; a primary alcohol forms an aldehyde instead, and a tertiary alcohol usually does not form either a ketone or an alcohol, because the carbon having the OH group in a tertiary alcohol already has three bonds to other carbon atoms and therefore cannot form a double bond to oxygen without more extensive breaking of other bonds in the tertiary alcohol.
