Ketal - Phosphonic acid diester - Phosphonic acid ester - Monosaccharide - Oxolane - Organophosphonic acid derivative - Meta-dioxolane - Oxacycle - Organoheterocyclic compound - Dialkyl ether - Organopnictogen compound - Organic oxide - Hydrocarbon derivative - Organophosphorus compound - Aliphatic heteropolycyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as ketals. These are acetals derived from ketones by replacement of the oxo group by two hydrocarbyloxy groups R2C(OR)2 ( R not Hydrogen ). This term, once abandoned, has been reinstated as a subclass of acetals.
