Methacrylic Acid Production Cost Analysis 2021

Methacrylic acid, which can be abbreviated to MAA, is an organic compound. It is a clear, colourless liquid and can be recognized because of its pungent odour. It is corrosive to metals and tissue. It may polymerize exothermically if heated or contaminated.  

Methacrylic acid occurs naturally in small amounts in the oil of Roman chamomile. Methacrylic acid is commonly made from acetone cyanohydrin, which is converted to methacrylamide sulphate using sulphuric acid. 

It is soluble in warm water and also miscible with most organic solvents. It is manufactured on a large scale in industries as an antecedent to its esters, especially methyl methacrylate or MMA and poly(methyl methacrylate) or PMMA. Methacrylic acid is also widely used in some nail primers to help acrylic nails adhere to the nail plate. Apart from this, it is also used extensively in adhesives, and leather treatment agents and as raw materials in the manufacture of ion-exchange resins.
