Acrylic Acid
Acrylic Acid
Acroleic Acid
Propenoic Acid
Acrylic Acid (a.k.a. Acroleic Acid, Propenoic Acid) is a moderately strong unsaturated carboxylic acid, consisting of an ethene substituted by a carboxy group. It is a colorless liquid with a strong acrid odor. The presence of a carboxy group in its structure provides anionic characteristics and higher reactivity with epoxides and alcohols.
The uses and applications of Acrylic Acid may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Acrylic Acid are ester-grade (technical grade, approx. 94% purity) and glacial (polymer grade, generally 99.6% minimum purity).
