Butyl acrylate

Butyl acrylate (acrylic acid butyl ester) is a colorless liquid with an unpleasant pungent odor. It is well soluble in organic solvents, poorly - in water.

Butyl acrylate is easily polymerized by heat, light, initiators, and it is also easily copolymerized, for example, with acrylic acid, its salts and esters, acrylamide, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, vinyl monomers, butadiene.
