Functional groups are groups of atoms or bonds within molecules that have characteristic chemical (including the chemical reactions they participate in) and physical properties. For example, primary alcohols (compound with an alcohol functional group) undergo oxidation to aldehydes and carboxylic acids. Their pKas are also within a similar range.
