Glacial Acrylic Acid (CAS No. 79-10-7) or 2-propenoic acid is the starting point for all acrylic chemistry. It can be reacted with alcohols to form esters know as acrylates. Acrylic acid and it's esters are used as the components for polymers used in adhesives, coatings, inks, plastics, elastomers, water treatment, personal care, and various other industries. Glacial Acrylic Acid is highly susceptible to dimerization and must be handled with care. If frozen, extreme precaution should be taken to thaw the monomer to prevent a run away polymerization and potential explosion.
