9002-89-5 Usage

Air & Water Reactions

Water soluble.

Fire Hazard

This chemical is combustible. The dusts of this chemical are a slight explosion hazard when exposed to flame. (NTP, 1992)

Health Hazard

SYMPTOMS: Inhalation of the dust of this chemical may cause irritation of the nose and throat and cause coughing and chest discomfort if heated above 390° F. The dusts may also irritate the eyes. Implantation of this chemical into the breast has been associated with fibrosis. ACUTE/CHRONIC HAZARDS: This compound may be harmful by ingestion and inhalation. It may cause irritation. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke, irritating fumes and toxic fumes of carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. (NTP, 1992)

Reactivity Profile

Mixtures of alcohols with concentrated sulfuric acid and strong hydrogen peroxide can cause explosions. Example: an explosion will occur if dimethylbenzylcarbinol is added to 90% hydrogen peroxide then acidified with concentrated sulfuric acid. Mixtures of ethyl alcohol with concentrated hydrogen peroxide form powerful explosives. Mixtures of hydrogen peroxide and 1-phenyl-2-methyl propyl alcohol tend to explode if acidified with 70% sulfuric acid [Chem. Eng. News 45(43):73. 1967; J, Org. Chem. 28:1893. 1963]. Alkyl hypochlorites are violently explosive. They are readily obtained by reacting hypochlorous acid and alcohols either in aqueous solution or mixed aqueous- carbon tetrachloride solutions. Chlorine plus alcohols would similarly yield alkyl hypochlorites. They decompose in the cold and explode on exposure to sunlight or heat. Tertiary hypochlorites are less unstable than secondary or primary hypochlorites [NFPA 491 M 1991]. Base-catalysed reactions of isocyanates with alcohols should be carried out in inert solvents. Such reactions in the absence of solvents often occur with explosive violence [Wischmeyer 1969].

Vinyl alcohol has not been isolated in the free state; the keto tautomer, acetaldehyde, is much the more stable form and is always obtained:Thus poly(vinyl alcohol) cannot be prepared from its monomer by the usual techniques, although the polymerization of acetaldehyde with sodium amalgam at - 80 to - 20℃ has been found to give poly( vinyl alcohol) of low molecular weight. For commercial purposes, poly(vinyl alcohol) is obtained exclusively from poly(vinyl acetate).Poly(vinyl acetate) is readily hydrolysed by treating an alcoholic solution with aqueous acid or alkali. Acid hydrolysis results in traces of acid in the poly(vinyl alcohol) which are difficult to remove and which lead to instability of the polymer; alkaline hydrolysis results in contamination of the product by a large amount of sodium acetate which is also difficult to remove and which has little intrinsic value. These difficulties are avoided if poly(vinyl alcohol) is prepared from poly(vinyl acetate) by alcoholysis using a small amount of base as catalyst. The reaction is commonly carried out by treating poly(vinyl acetate) with methanol in the presence of sodium methoxide:The preferred methods of preparing poly(vinyl acetate) for conversion to poly(vinyl alcohol) are solution and suspension polymerization. The former technique has the advantage that if polymerization is conducted in methanol the resulting solution can be used directly without the need for isolating the polymer; this method is the most suitable for continuous processes. Bulk polymerized poly(vinyl acetate) tends to give low molecular weight poly(vinyl alcohol) of poor colour. In one continuous process, a solution of poly(vinyl acetate) in methanol (about 20%) is mixed with the catalyst solution in a high speed in-line mixer. The mixture then passes through a 'gelling zone' on a conveyor belt. Typically, the material is kept at 40℃ for 10 minutes in this zone during which time the alcoholysis reaction occurs; poly(vinyl alcohol) is insoluble in methanol and a gel is produced. The gel is chopped up and neutralized with acetic acid to stop reaction; the liquid content (whica is mainly methanol and methyl acetate) is then expressed and recovered. The residual solid is washed with methanol, dried and pulverized.It is possible to control the extent to which acetate groups are replaced by hydroxyl groups by changing the reaction conditions. In particular, the catalyst concentration and the time of reaction have a major effect on the degree of alcoholysis. The most common commercial types of poly(vinyl alcohol) are the so-called partially hydrolysed grades in which 87-89% of the acetate groups have been replaced and the completely hydrolysed grades in which 99-100% of the acetate groups have been replaced. The degree of alcoholysis has an effect on the properties of the polymer.


ChEBI: A homopolymer macromolecule obtained by polymerisation of vinyl alcohol.

Production Methods

Polyvinyl alcohol is produced through the hydrolysis of polyvinyl acetate. The repeating unit of vinyl alcohol is not used as the starting material because it cannot be obtained in the quantities and purity required for polymerization purposes. The hydrolysis proceeds rapidly in methanol, ethanol, or a mixture of alcohol and methyl acetate, using alkalis or mineral acids as catalysts.

Brand name

Liquifilm Tears (Allergan).

General Description

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) is a hydrophilic linear polymer which forms copolymers of vinyl alcohol and vinyl acetate. Hence, the structural properties of polyvinyl alcohol polymers depend on the extent of polymerization and hydrolysis. Such changes cause both chemical and physical modifications such as esterification, etherification, crystallization, ion-polymer complexation in the polymer. Modified- PVOH structures are useful in biomedical applications.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Polyvinyl alcohol is used primarily in topical pharmaceutical and ophthalmic formulations. It is used as a stabilizing agent for emulsions (0.25–3.0% w/v). Polyvinyl alcohol is also used as a viscosity-increasing agent for viscous formulations such as ophthalmic products. It is used in artificial tears and contact lens solutions for lubrication purposes, in sustained-release formulations for oral administration, and in transdermal patches. Polyvinyl alcohol may be made into microspheres when mixed with a glutaraldehyde solution.

Industrial uses

Polyvinyl alcohol is a tough, whitish polymerthat can be formed into strong films, tubes, andfibers that are highly resistant to hydrocarbonsolvents. Although polyvinyl alcohol is one ofthe few water-soluble polymers, it can be renderedinsoluble in water by drawing or by theuse of cross-linking agents.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) is a polyhydroxy polymer, soluble in water. PVA is known to possess high mechanical strength, biocompatibility and non-toxicity. Hence, it serves as a biomedical implant material. Polymerization of vinyl acetate to poly (vinyl acetate), which is then hydrolysed to form PVA. Its application is observed in drug delivery systems, wound dressing, dialysis membranes, artificial skin, surgical repairs and cardiovascular devices.

Safety Profile

Questionable carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic and tumorigenic data by implant route. Flammable when exposed to heat or flame; can react with oxidizing materials. Slight explosion hazard in the form of dust when exposed to flame. To fight fire, use alcohol foam, CO2, dry chemical. When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.


Polyvinyl alcohol is generally considered a nontoxic material. It is nonirritant to the skin and eyes at concentrations up to 10%; concentrations up to 7% are used in cosmetics. Studies in rats have shown that polyvinyl alcohol 5% w/v aqueous solution injected subcutaneously can cause anemia and infiltrate various organs and tissues. (mouse, oral): 14.7 g/kg (rat, oral): >20 g/kg


Polyvinyl alcohol is stable when stored in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place. Aqueous solutions are stable in corrosionresistant sealed containers. Preservatives may be added to the solution if extended storage is required. Polyvinyl alcohol undergoes slow degradation at 100°C and rapid degradation at 200°C; it is stable on exposure to light.


Polyvinyl alcohol undergoes reactions typical of a compound with secondary hydroxy groups, such as esterification. It decomposes in strong acids, and softens or dissolves in weak acids and alkalis. It is incompatible at high concentration with inorganic salts, especially sulfates and phosphates; precipitation of polyvinyl alcohol 5% w/v can be caused by phosphates. Gelling of polyvinyl alcohol solution may occur if borax is present.
