Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA)

Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA)

2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA)

2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate (2-EHA) .is an ester of Acrylic acid and is .used as a raw material. component in the .synthesis of polymers. 2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate . is a difunctional monomer with a characteristic high reactivity. of methacrylates and a branched hydrophobic moiety. Copolymers of 2-Ethylhexyl acrylate can be prepared with (meth) acrylic acid. and its salts, amides, and esters, and with (meth) acrylates. acrylonitrile, maleic acid esters, vinyl acetate, vinyl chloride. vinylidene chloride, styrene, butadiene, unsaturated polyesters and drying oils, etc.

2-Ethylhexyl Acrylate 

is also a very useful feedstock. for chemical syntheses. because it readily. undergoes addition .reactions with a wide. variety of organic .and inorganic compounds.
