== Alcohol is formed by a chemical reaction called fermentation that occurs when yeast and some sort of grain are mixed in a closed container. The yeast preform anaerobic respiration and ethanol is produced along with carbon dioxide. I'm pretty sure it was from the Greek and Romans with wine. Made from grapes. Then the Irish or someone came up with the whole Beer thing. Alcohol is the second stage of sugar. When sugar ferments or decays or rots, it becomes alcohol. You can get alcohol from any grain of fruit or vegetable with a high enough sugar content. When alcohol ages, it becomes vinegar. The third stage in sugar.

Distinguish ethyl alcohol from methyl alcohol?

Ethyl alcohol (C3C2OH) known as ethanol in the IUPAC nomenclature is called grain alcohol as it is traditionally produced for distillation to pure alcohol by the fermentation of grain derived sugars.

Is denatured alcohol the same as white spirits?

i do not believe so... although denatured alcohol is a powerful solvent, it evaporates rapidly and is derived from methanol (or alcohol). White Spirits are not derived from alcohol and will not evaporate as quickly. Although denatured alcohol may take a little dry oil paint off your skin, it will not be nearly as effective as White Spirits or Mineral Spirits (paint thinner.) Most Oil Based paint pigments have thinner added already to make the paint more viscus.

The chemical structure of alcohol is similar to which macronutrient?

The chemical structure of alcohol is similar to the macronutrient carbohydrate.The primary reason for this is that alcohol can be derived from the fermentation of sugars and it is an organic compound. However when looking at the basic structure of an alcohol, it more closely resembles the inorganic micronutrient water, as one of the hydrogen atoms of water is replaced by the alkyl group of alcohol.
