There are three types of alcohol that dissolve in water: ethanol, methanol, and propanol. These three alcohols are miscible, meaning that they will dissolve in water within any proportion. In the case of alcohols, the rule of any other case carries over, meaning that the basic solubility rule that “like dissolves like” still holds true, but is a bit more complex.
Every alcohol is made up of a chain of nonpolar carbons and a polar OH group. Water is polar meaning that it will attract the OH group within the alcohol, while the nonpolar chain is repelled. “The solubility of alcohols is therefore determined by the stronger of the two forces”.
