Methoxy group

The structure of a typical methoxy group.

In chemistry (particularly organic chemistry), methoxy refers to the functional group consisting of a methyl group bound to oxygen. It has the formula:

OCH3

The word is used in organic nomenclature usually to describe an ether. It is also an electron-donating group and can cause an organic compound to become less acidic.

Examples of methoxy ethers are methoxyethane and methoxypropane.
