Pertaining to organic compounds containinga triple bond ( C C ) or acetylene group in themolecule.
Acetylenic diol used with pesticides to en-hance activity, lower the rate of application, and in-crease safety.
Primary, secondary, or tertiary acetylenic alco-hol with the hydroxyl group generally adjacent or
tothe triple bond.
