Ethyl Acrylate

Ethyl acrylate is an ester of acrylic acid, used as a building block for homo- and copolymers.



Michael Schaefer

Ethyl acrylate forms homo- and copolymers. Copolymers of ethyl acrylate can be prepared with acrylic acid and its salts, amides and esters, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, maleates, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, unsaturated polyesters, and drying oils. Ethyl  acrylate is also an important feedstock for chemical syntheses because  it readily undergoes addition reactions with many organic and inorganic compounds.
