A light, volatile, mobile, inflammable liquid, (C2H5)2O, of a characteristic aromatic odor, obtained by the distillation of alcohol with sulphuric acid, and hence called also sulphuric ether. It is a powerful solvent of fats, resins, and pyroxylin, but finds its chief use as an anæsthetic. Commonly called ethyl ether to distinguish it from other ethers, and also ethyl oxide.
Any similar compound in which an oxygen atom is bound to two different carbon atoms, each of which is part of an organic radical; as, amyl ether; valeric ether; methyl ethyl ether. The general formular for an ether is ROR´, in which R and R´ are organic radicals which may be of similar or different structure. If R and R´ are different parts of the same organic radical, the structure forms a cyclic ether.
Chemical name: di-ethyl ether Chemical formula: (C2H5)2O See also: Chemical Table.
Eetteri Eter ROR´, i.e. A chemical compound containing -C-O-C- structure.
A generic term applied to a group of organic chemical compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, characterized by an oxygen atom attached to two carbon atoms (e.g., methyl tertiary butyl ether).
an organic compound in which oxygen is bonded to two carbon groups; the general formula is Râˆ’Oâˆ’R.
A volatile liquid with a characteristic odor. Used as a medical anesthetic gas.
A compound in which an oxygen atom is attached to two carbon atoms, such as diethyl ether, CH3CH2OCH2CH3.
Diethyl ether, ethyl ether. A highly flammable solvent which can form explosive peroxides when exposed to air. Flash point of -49°F. Explosive range of 1.85% to 48%.
a colorless volatile highly inflammable liquid formerly used as an inhalation anesthetic
any of a class of organic compounds that have two hydrocarbon groups linked by an oxygen atom
a compound that has a C-O-C connection
an oxygen bridge between two organic compounds
A class of organic compounds containing an oxygen atom linked to two organic groups.
Also known as diethyl ether; ethyl oxide; diethyl oxide; sulfuric ether; anesthetic ether; or simply ether. A colorless, mobile, very volatile and highly flammable liquid. Characteristic, sweetish, pungent odor, more agreeable than chloroform. Ether vapors are heavier than air. Tends to form explosive peroxides under the influence of the air and light. When shaken under absolutely dry conditions, ether can generate enough static electricity to start a fire. Shipped in cans, drums, barrels, and tank cars. Not miscible with water, forming a separate layer on the surface. In addition to its well-known use as an anesthetic, ether is used as a solvent in fats, waxes, dyes, perfumes, oils, resins, etc. In illicit heroin production, ether is used as a solvent in the conversion of heroin base to heroin hydrochloride.
A compound containing two organic radicals linked by an oxygen atom.
Any of a series of organic compounds the molecules of which have an oxygen atom attached to two carbon atoms in hydrocarbon radicals. Low molecular weight ethers are fire and explosion hazards. When they contain peroxides they can detonate on heating.
Compound in which an oxygen atom is bonded to two alkyl or two aryl groups, or one alkyl and one aryl group.
An inhalant. Ether was one of the first anesthetics to be used in surgery, but has been replaced by more effective, safer anesthetics.
liquid used to freebase cocaine
Ether is the general name for a class of chemical compounds which contain an ether group â€” an oxygen atom connected to two (substituted) alkyl groups. A typical example is the solvent and anesthetic diethyl ether, commonly referred to simply as "ether", (ethoxyethane, CH3-CH2-O-CH2-CH3).
Ether (or Bathalumang Ether) is a fictional character from the Philippine telefantasya Etheria, which is a prequel/sequel to the highly rated Encantadia. Ether is played by Filipina actress Angel Aquino .
