Description

Methyl vinyl ether is an organic compound with the chemical formula C3H6O. It is the simplest chemical that contains both an alkene group and an alkyl group with an ether linkage. The compound can be made by reaction of acetylene and methanol in presence of a base. ; The alkene portion of the molecule is reactive in many ways. It is prone to polymerization, leading to formation of poly(methyl vinyl ether) (PMVE, CAS: 9003-09-2). This mode of reactivity is analogous to the way vinyl acetate and vinyl chloride can be polymerized to form polyvinyl acetate and polyvinyl chloride, respectively. The alkene can also react in [4+2] cycloaddition reactions. The reaction of it with acrolein is the first step in the commercial synthesis of glutaraldehyde.
The compound is useful as a synthon for nucleophilic acylation, via deprotonation of the alkene adjacent to the oxygen attachment. In particular, this approach allows synthesis of a variety of acyl derivatives of silicon, germanium, and tin that cannot be made easily by other routes.

Basic treatment: Establish a patent airway. Suction if necessary. Watch for signs of respiratory insufficiency and assist ventilations if necessary. Administer oxygen by nonrebreather mask at 10 to 15 L/min. Provide a low-stimulus environment. Monitor for shock and treat if necessary ... . Anticipate seizures and treat if necessary ... . For eye contamination, flush eyes immediately with water. Irrigate each eye continuously with normal saline during transport ... . Do not use emetics. For ingestion, rinse mouth and administer 5 mL/kg up to 200 mL of water for dilution if the patient can swallow, has a strong gag reflex, and does not drool ... . Treat frostbite by rapid rewarming ... . /Ethers and related compounds/

10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

VERY DANGEROUS; CAN REACT VIGOROUSLY WITH OXIDIZING MATERIALS.VINYL METHYL ETHER reacts vigorously with oxidizing materials. Explosive in the form of vapor when exposed to heat, flame or strong oxidizing agents. Reacts, possibly explosively with halogens (bromine, chlorine) or hydrogen halides (hydrogen bromide, hydrogen chloride) [Baker, 1980, p. 487]. On contact with dilute acids or even mildly acidic solids (calcium chloride, ceramics) undergoes rapid, exothermic homopolymerization, which cannot be prevented by antioxidants. Must be stored in the presence of base [MVE Brochure, Billingham, ICI, 1962].
