Question

# Which of the following is not correct about methanol?A. It is used for drinking purposeB. It is a highly poisonous compoundC. It can be prepared by reduction of formaldehyde with $\text{LiAl}{{\text{H}}_{4}}$.D. It is miscible with water in all-purpose

Hint: Methanol which is also known as methyl alcohol is a colourless and toxic liquid. Methanol can affect the central nervous system for our mind. Lithium aluminium hydride is a strong reducing agent and it can reduce the formaldehyde. Methanol is a polar substance.

-Methanol has a chemical formula of $\text{C}{{\text{H}}_{3}}\text{OH}$ and it is not considered for the drinking purpose because methanol is highly toxic.
\begin{align} & \text{H - CHO }\xrightarrow{\text{LiAl}{{\text{H}}_{4}}}\text{ C}{{\text{H}}_{3}}\text{OH} \\ & \text{(Formaldehyde) (Methanol)} \\ \end{align}
