About Polyvinyl Alcohol. Polyvinyl Alcohol (a.k.a. PVOH) is a water-soluble synthetic thermoplastic polymer. It is usually available in film, pallets or aqueous solution, with the film having oil resistance, toughness and high tensile strength. Polyvinyl alcohol has a good biocompatibility, biodegradability and hydrophilicity, making it one of the few materials that can be used in biomedical fields. Its main uses are in the paper, plastic, fishing and medical/pharmaceutical areas.
Chemical Formula. [CH2CH(OH)]n
Commercial Grades. Super (+99% hydrolyzed); fully (98-99%hydrolyzed); intermediate (90-98% hydrolyzed); partial (85-89% hydrolyzed)
Uses. Production of a variety of plastics (as a protective colloid, dispersant, raw material, molding compound and others); bait for fishing; controlled delivery agent for medicine capsules; hydrogel; paper coatings and adhesives; manufacturing of glues; photosensitive films; printing inks; thickener; slow releasing agrichemicals
- Polyesters + organic alcohol (mainly methanol and ethanol) (hydrolysis, followed by base-catalyzed transesterification).
Derivatives. Acetic acid; poly(vinyl alcohol); poly(vinyl formal)
