About Acrylic 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. Acrylic acid is also a versatile monomer employed as building block for a variety of polymer formulations.
Chemical Formula. C3H4O2
Commercial Grades. Technical/esterification/polymerization grade (ca. 94% purity); glacial grade (98% – 99.7% purity)
Uses. Acrylic Acid is directly used in the production of an acrylic acid polymer or, after esterification with alcohols, in the production of the polymer of the corresponding ester. These acrylate esters are in turn widely used in a range of applications. The main end-uses of acrylic esters are presented next: surface coatings; textiles; acrylic fibers; adhesives; additives; detergent co-builders.
- Propylene + oxygen (oxidation)
- Glycerol + oxygen (dehydration/oxidation)
- Acetylene + oxygen + water (hydrocarboxylation)
- Acrylonitrile + water (hydrolysis)

Derivatives. Arylic Acid is used as raw material in the production of allyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate and polyacrylic acid.
