Acrylic acid


Acrylic acid is a colorless liquid above its freezing point of +13°C ( +56°F). It is fully miscible in water at +20°C (+68°F).
Acrylic acid will polymerize to form homopolymers and can be copolymerized with their esters and other vinyl monomers. Its carboxylic acid functionality provides anionic character and reactivity with alcohols and epoxides.
