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.
