Where I live, 1-pentanol and "octyl alcohol" are easily available. I am however not sure, if the latter is 1-octanol or some branched isomer. 1-butanol I have in the lab.
I will try to prepare some 2-methyl-2pentanol, 2-methyl-2hexanol and 3-methyl-3-heptanol.

As to quantities: If I remember blogfasts posts correctly, he used about 5 .. 6 grams of alcohol for each of his potassium runs. 25 g should therefore be a quantity that allows a few of these experiments.
