There is substantial agreement that the molecules of n-aliphatic alcohols lie generally parallel, with the alternate ends of a longitudinal series of molecules being a pair of polar ends and a pair of non-polar ends. The suggestion has been made that there is no transverse space relationship of the polar pairs. The reasons for and against this suggestion are stated and it is concluded that there is high probability that their polar groups in n-alcohols do have a three dimensional space relationship in the liquid state.
