Best Answer

Alcohol is made of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. There are many different alcohols, the main one usually referred to is ethyl alcohol, or ethanol. It has the chemical structure of CH3CH2OH, so it has 2 carbons, 6 hydrogens, and one oxygen.

Answer:Alcohol, by which most people mean ethyl alcohol, can be made by two routes. When we crush grapes, or other fruits, as in preparing wine, we prepare a solution which contains ethyl alcohol in low concentration. By distillation we can concentrate the alcohol. Alcohol can also be made by the reaction of the gas ethylene obtained from the heating with catalyst with water containing some acid. It again is concentrated by distillation. Special techniques must be used to isolate pure, absolute alcohol, to completely remove the water.

== 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.

Ethanol C2H5OH

*****

If you mean 'alcoholic drinks'. there's also water, colourings, flavourings (including sugar), preservatives, hallucinogenic herbs (wormwood in absinthe) and up to at least 4,000 possible impurities, including arsenic, polonium 210, benzene.........! Alcohol is a clear drink that is made from corn, barley, grain, rye, or a beverage containing ethyl.

Ethanol can be distilled from any material which contains complex carbohydrate molecules. Corn is used frequently in the US; sugar cane is used mostly in Brazil. Leftover plant materials such as corn cobs and wood chips can be used, but require more processing before they are ready to be fermented. Switchgrass and potatoes are other materials which are used somewhat.

Alcohol fermentation is done by yeast and some kinds of bacteria. These microorganisms convert sugars in ethyl alcohol and carbon dioxide. Alcoholic fermentation begins after glucose enters the cell. The glucose is broken down into pyruvic acid. This pyruvic acid is then converted to CO2, ethanol, and energy for the cell. Humans have long taken advantage of this process in making bread, beer, and wine. In these three product the same microorganism is used: the common yeast or Saccharomyces Cerevisae

Alcohol can also be made by the reaction of the gas ethylene obtained from the heating with catalyst with water containing some acid. It again is concentrated by distillation.

Special techniques must be used to isolute pure, absolute alcohol, to completely remove the water.
