Acrylic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2020
Acrylic acid, better known by its IUPAC name propenoic acid, is a well known organic compound. It is also known as acroleic acid. It is the simplest unsaturated carboxylic acid that is composed of a vinyl group connected to a carboxylic acid terminus. This colourless solvent has a characteristic acrid or tart smell. It is soluble with water, alcohol, ethers, as well as with chloroform. More than a million tons of this chemical solvent is manufactured every year.
Acrylic acid is processed with typical reactions of a carboxylic acid. When it is reacted with an alcohol, it forms the corresponding ester. The esters or salts of acrylic acid are collectively known as acrylates (or propenoates). The most widely available alkyl esters of acrylic acid are methyl, butyl, ethyl, and 2-ethyl hexyl acrylates. Acrylic acid or its esters can readily combine with themselves in order to form polyacrylic acid or other monomers, for example, the acrylamides, acrylonitrile, vinyl compounds, styrene, and butadiene, by reacting at their double bond, forming homopolymers or copolymers that are further utilised in the production of numerous plastics, coatings, adhesives, elastomers, as well as floor polishes and paints. Acrylic acid is widely used in numerous industries like the diaper industry, the water treatment industry, or the textile industry.
