Divinyl ether is a highly volatile colorless liquid. This compound can be synthesized
from dichloroethyl ether by treatment with alkali. It is used by medical practitioners
as an inhalation anesthetic for short operations. This chemical is also used to synthesize
co-polymers for clear plastic bottles. A word of caution, ethers are known to form
peroxides, which are can potentially lead to an explosion. Therefore, one should
periodically test for peroxides using a test such as the potassium iodide detection method.
