Answers

Methanol is a substituted hydrocarbon due to the fact that it has one or more of its original hydrogens substituted with another group of elements. It is commomly represented as: CH3OH. In Methanol's case, it is produced by giving up or exchanging its carbon dioxide elements for hydrogen. It is converted, most commonly in this way: CO2 + 3 H2 → CH3 OH + H2 O
