In alcohol, hw does incres in e- density lead to decres in polarity & hence ionisation of -OH bond??

Expert Answer:

In alcohol, an increase in electron density on oxygen tends to decrease the polarity of O-H bond because if the electron density on the oxygen atom increases, it would not pull the electron from the H-atom & hence ionisation of OH bond becomes difficult.
