Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM)
Vinyl chloride is the organochloride with the formula CH2=CHCl. It is also called vinyl chloride monomer, or VCM. This colourless compound is an important industrial chemical mainly used to produce the polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Vinyl chloride is a chemical intermediate, not a final product and hence there are no end products that use vinyl chloride in its monomer form.
