vinyl ether

vinyl ether

An anesthetic agent that is virtually obsolete because it is explosive or flammable in the concentration required to produce anesthesia.
See also: vinyl


1. diethyl ether: a colorless, transparent, very volatile, highly inflammable liquid with a characteristic odor; given by inhalation to produce general anesthesia.
2. any organic compound containing an oxygen atom bonded to two carbon atoms.

spiritus ether nit
used as a stimulant for depressed animals, both as an inhalant and in oral drenches.
vinyl ether
a clear colorless liquid used as an inhalation anesthetic.

Since the menthol vinyl ether monomer is not commercially available, it was of interest to produce and characterize coatings derived from copolymers of 2-VOES and a commercially available vinyl ether monomer that could substantially increase copolymer [T.
The change in vinyl ether conversion as a function of different UV exposure times is illustrated in Figure 2.
This was demonstrated using a number of comonomers including cyclohexyl vinyl ether (CHVE), menthol vinyl ether (MVE), and pentaethylene glycol ethyl vinyl ether (PEGEVE).
The vinyl ether silane was prepared according to the patent (34).
This copolymer consists of alternating sequences of fluoroolefin and several specific vinyl ether units (Figure 1) and is completely amorphous.
6 was expressed as the sum of the two distinct contributions attributed to vinyl ether and cyclo epoxy monomers, as reported in Eq.
The authors [22-24] previously reported that a two-component photoresist system composed of poly{phydroxystyrene-co-p-[2-(vinyloxy)ethoxy]styrene} (PVES) and a PAG, and a three-component photoresist system composed of a polymer bearing carboxyl groups (or a phenolic polymer), a vinyl ether monomer, and a PAG, exhibit positive working behavior with high resolution.
a short sidechain, such as the C-Cl bond in chlorosulfonated polyethylene, required a high measurement frequency (short relaxation time) due to the rapid mobility of the sidechain, whereas a longer sidechain, such as the vinyl ether sidegroup in Nafion(r), required a much lower frequency (longer relaxation time) to orient the sidechain to a measurable extent.
It offers a unique multi-vinyl ether functionality, in which, four terminal vinyl ether groups are available to react.
Ciba's Irgacure 250 cationic photoinitiator is suited for curing formulations based on epoxy or vinyl ether resin chemistry.
When the photolysis of the vinyl ethers were carried out in presence of air in acetonitrile as solvent, a C=C bond scission occurred, that resulted in the formation of the ketone (about 60%), while the expected aldehyde was obtained as a minor product (about 20%).
