Hydroxyl - Definition


Definition


A hydroxyl is a group of molecules composed of two HO atoms (hydrogen and oxygen) that exhibit similar chemical properties. This group is found in oxoacids and alcohols, yet also in water, phenols, and even metallic hydroxides. When other molecules are added to a hydroxyl it forms hydroxides such as aluminium hydroxide, found in many different medicinal drugs, or magnesium hydroxide.
