1-Hexanol is an organic alcohol with a six carbon chain and a condensed structural formula of CH3(CH2)5OH. This colorless liquid is slightly soluble in water, but miscible with ether and ethanol. Two additional straight chain isomers of 1-hexanol exist, 2-hexanol and 3-hexanol, both of which differ by the location of the hydroxyl group. Many isomeric alcohols have the formula C6H13OH. 1-hexanol is believed to be a component of the odor of freshly mowed grass. It is used in the perfume industry.

Person 1:hey man, what will Lithium Aluminum Hydride (LiAlH4) do to a carboxylic acid with six carbons?
Person 2: Oh you mean, hexanal? It gets reduced to the primary alcohol hexanol
