Because of the structure of the CH3OH molecule, it is technically protic (meaning that it readily donates hydrogen ions). It can be identified as protic because of the O-H bond present in the molecule. Additionally, this molecule is polar (as it is an alcohol). Therefore, because it donates hydrogen ions, it also donates electrons (i.e. it is considered a nucleophile).
