Additional information

Decan-1-ol is a colourless organic liquid with a typical odour at standard temperature and pressure.

Discussion of trends in the Category of C6-24 linear and essentially-linear aliphatic alcohols:

Linear alcohols up to C11 are liquids at 20°C when in their pure state. Between C12-24 they are waxy solids (though crystalline forms can be prepared by precipitation from certain organic solvents). Isomeric alcohols, with a branch present, melt at slightly lower temperatures than their linear equivalents. Commercial products which are mixtures of alcohols behave differently.
