Divinyl sulfone acts as a cross-linking reagent for agarose gels. It is a monomer; which is used in the production of polymers with diols; urea and malonic esters. Further; it serves as a shrinkage control agent in textiles. In addition to this; it is used in the preparation of large class of fiber-reactive dyestuffs. Hyaluronic acid (HA) crosslinked with DVS forms hydrogels.DVS and its mono and di-substituted derivatives are useful starting materials in the preparation of thiomorpholine 1;1-dioxides and other synthetically important macro- and the heterocycles.DVS may be used to shrink proofing cotton by crosslinking it with cellulose.
Divinyl sulfone (DVS) has been popularly used as a cross linking agent.
