1. The members of the alkanol series are liquids at room temperature.
2. The boiling points and melting points of the alkanols increases with the increase in relative molecular mass. The boilings points are higher than those of alkanes with the same number of carbon atoms due to the hydrogen bonds present in the alkanol.
3. The hydrogen bond also make the solubility of alkanols higher than those of alkanes with the same number of carbon atoms.
