    hello, all.

    i have a question/request. i am hellbent on getting an alcohol/ethanol molecule tattoo, but i can't find it. i don't know much about chemistry, but i simply like the way it looks. i figured; what better to place to ask for help than here? hopefully.

    if anyone--AAAAAAAANYONE--can please help me, i would greatly appreciated.

    i found the caffeine mollecule a billion times online, but i can't find the ethanol one. i found this:

    but i am looking for it in this way;

    please forgive my lack of proper terminology.
    once again, if anyone knows how to write that out in such a way that it's not in the way the pic i posted is in...or if anyone can find it in a book or anywhere online...i would greeeeatly appreciate it.

    thanks!

    The drawing of caffeine has the same level of detail as the one of etahnol, ethanol is simply not a cyclic molecule, while caffeine is one(Am I right when I assume its a purine derivate?)

    Anyway why the hell would you want to tatoo that one your body? You say you like the way the molecule looks? Thats not how it looks, thats just an abstract scheme to help us visualize it.

    Anyway who would want that anyway, just another day at the trailer park eh?

    I fear I have to disappoint you and agree with ultrashogun, the molecule of ethanol is to simple to draw in the same way as caffeine. Every corner of the structure represents a Carbon atom, and H on those Carbons are not represented; so the molecule CH3-CH2-OH (ethanol) will be quite dull as you can imagine and never used.

    i happen to like the visualization.

    i want that. and i want that on my body because i like it and the money that i work for would pay for something i want. make sense?and no, not just another day in the trailer park; i'm from L.A.

    i bet your response was made to somehow make me look dumb and make you look great. well, i guess you got what you wanted. except not really. anyway, thanks for your explanation.

    Thanks, Him.

    but can anyone please draw it out or somehow link me to it in an "abstract" visual "scheme"?

    I don't care for tatoos either, but it's your body. *shrug*

    Thank you Elbethil for your links. They are about as good as you'll get, sal_paradise. Personally, I think tatoos are a sign of need. Do you really need a tatoo of this on your body?

    In my opinion not that it means much, but ethanoic acid will look better because it has the structure H O it does not seem as blah.

    I think the ethanol molekyle looks like this.

    H H
    H--C--C--OH
    H H

    5 hydrogen atoms, 2 coal atoms and 1 Alcohol atom as you know ^^

    I was working with this in shcool by 1 year ago, So i hope i remember the form of the ethanol molekyle, But it's should be right.
