vinyl ether

[′vīn·əl ′ē·thər]
(organic chemistry)
CH2:CHOCH:CH2 A colorless, light-sensitive, flammable, explosive liquid; soluble in alcohol, acetone, ether, and chloroform, slightly soluble in water; boils at 39°C; used as an anesthetic and a comonomer in polyvinyl chloride polymers. Also known as divinyl ether; divinyl oxide.

For most carbocationic polymerizations of a vinyl ether produced using a Lewis Acid coinitiator, such as ethylaluminum sesquichloride, an appropriate concentration of Lewis base is needed to obtain a living polymerization.
All of the formulations used in the demonstration contained Ashland Advantage 4910 polymer, and one or more polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) based copolymers, Aquaflex polymers or Gantrez methyl vinyl ether and maleic acid (PVM/MA) copolymers that bring additional styling and hold benefits, such as stiffness, shine, climate control, touchable hold, style longevity or improved curl memory--attributes that keep hair spray a go-to styling aid, representing $3 billion a year business.
Linear vinyl ether polymers with narrow molecular weight distributions were obtained from novel vinyl ether monomers derived from a variety of renewable resources including plant oils, eugenol, and cardanol," said Chisholm.
Very few nanocomposites originating from vinyl ether monomers were mentioned in the literature.
Typical examples include coatings made from aqueous dispersions polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), tetrafluoroethylene/hexafluoroethylene copolymers (FEP), and tetrafluoroethylene/perfluoroalkyl vinyl ether copolymers (PFA) for non-stick and anti-corrosion applications.
