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.
