Air & Water Reactions
Water soluble. Hydrolyzes slowly in water.
4-VINYLCYCLOHEXENE DIOXIDE reacts with active hydrogen compounds (such as alcohols and amines). . Epoxides are highly reactive. They polymerize in the presence of catalysts or when heated. These polymerization reactions can be violent. Compounds in this group react with acids, bases, and oxidizing and reducing agents. They react, possibly violently with water in the presence of acid and other catalysts.
colourless liquid. Combustible.
ChEBI: The diepoxide of 4-vinylcyclohexene.
