What is a functional group? I'm looking through my notes and I can't seem to figure it out. Its talking ( as an example) about hydroxyl that goes with alcohol ( to form ethanol i think?)

    So wait, if have Hydroxyl ( which is shown in my book as R-OH, I think R being the compound), its thend mixed with something to give ethanol ( so 2 C and 5 H). But then the word Hydroxyl or even part of it is not even there ( its just confusing to me)
