Methacrylic Acid (MAA)

Methacrylic Acid (MAA)

Methacrylic Acid (MAA) is a functional monomer, an unsaturated monocarboxylic acid. MAA reacts as a vinyl compound and as a carboxylic acid.

MAA easily undergoes polymerization and addition reactions. The copolymers of MAA can be prepared with acrylic and methacrylic esters, acrylonitrile. maleic acid esters. vinyl acetate. vinyl chloride, vinylidene chloride. styrene, butadiene, ethylene, and other monomers.

Features & Benefits:
