Isobutylvinylether is a colorless liquid with an ether-like odor. It is miscible in water.
Vinyl ethers form alternating copolymers via charge transfer-complex polymerization with electron-deficient monomers, such as vinyl chlorides, maleic anhydride, TFCE, resulting in better solubility and flexibility.
Copolymers with n-Butyl vinyl ether are used for solvent based anti-corrosion coatings.
Co-monomer for polyvinyl ether-chloride resin. Used in anticrrosion paint road marking and printing inks
