Epoxyethane

Epoxyethane is simuler to ethene, with the exception that it does not have a double bond. Instead, the double bond has been saturated such that each carbon atom now bonds to the same oxygen atom. The formula is C2H4O, and can be shown like so:

CH2 - CH2

  |   |
 Oxygen

Each carbon atom is bonded with the central oxygen, and so the oxygen has two bonds with each carbon atom.
