Monohydric Alcohols

A family of organic compounds containing one hydroxyl group (:OH), used as solvents in gravure and flexographic printing inks, characterized by their high volatility (or ability to evaporate quickly at low temperatures), which expedites ink vehicle drying and ink setting. Examples of monohydric alcohols are methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, propyl alcohol, and isopropyl alcohol. (See also Polyhydric Alcohol.)
