I'm looking for examples of some interesting compounds that contain alcohol functional group (please, no joke suggestions about various liquor). Bonus points for creativity/thinking-outside-the-box.

Thanks.

Almost anything organic (can) contain(s) a hydroxy group. What exactly are you looking for?

Well, it was kind of a broad, open question about compounds with hydroxy group; I don't plan on using the compounds for anything, it's more for a puzzle of sort.
