epoxy

 [ĕ-pok´se]

e·pox·y

(ē-pok'sē),
Chemical term describing an oxygen atom bound to two linked carbon atoms
Generally, any cyclic ether, but commonly applied to a three-membered ring; specifically, a three-membered ring is an oxirane, a four-membered ring is an oxetane, a five-membered ring is an oxolane, and a six-membered ring is an oxane; oxiranes are commonly produced from peracids acting on alkenes. Epoxys are important chemical intermediates and the basis of epoxy resins (polymers) formed from epoxy monomers.

epoxy

an organic chemical substructure consisting of a three-membered ring derived from the union of an oxygen atom and two carbon atoms. Epoxy resins are used as bonding agents.
