Synthesis of Alcohols
Alkenes react with water, in the presence of acid, to yield alcohols. The mechanism follows Markovnikov addition. Alkyl halides react with hydroxide to produce alcohols. Organolithium or Grignard reagents add to aldehydes and ketones to produce alcohols. Hydrogen, from sodium borohydride, lithium aluminum hydride, or hydrogen, adds to aldehydes and ketones to produce alcohols.

Synthesis and Reactions of Ethers
In the Williamson ether synthesis, alkoxide ions react with zero degree or primary alkyl halides to form ethers. Ethers are cleaved with hydrogen halides to form alkyl halides and alcohols. The alkyl group in the alkyl halide is the least hindered alkyl group in the ether.
