Compounds in which an oxygen atom is directly attached to two adjacent or non-adjacent carbon atoms of a carbon chain or ring system; thus cyclic ethers. The term epoxides represents a subclass of epoxy compounds containing a saturated three-membered cyclic ether; thus oxirane derivatives, e.g. 1,2-epoxypropane, or 2-methyloxirane (an epoxide); 9,10-epoxy-9,10-dihydroanthracene (an epoxy compound).
