DescriptionOctanol is a straight chain fatty alcohol. Although the term octanol usually refers exclusively to the primary alcohol 1-octanol, there are other less common isomers of octanol such as the secondary alcohols 2-octanol, 3-octanol and 4-octanol. Octanol occurs naturally in the form of esters in some essential oils.
