(which is sometimes abbreviated as CH2=CHCOOH). It is a carboxylic acid, a colorless liquid with an acrid odor. Acrylic acid and its esters, the acrylates, are used in the manufacture of various plastics and occur in floor polishs and paints. Acrylic acid is produced from propylene, a gas that is a byproduct of oil refineries. Structure of a carboxylic acid Carboxylic acids are organic acids characterized by the presence of a carboxyl group, which has the formula -C(=O)-OH, usually written as COOH. The salts and anions of carboxylic acids are called carboxylates generally. ... In organic chemistry and biochemistry, esters are organic compounds where an organic group (symbolyzed by R in this article) replaces a hydrogen atom (or more than one) in an oxygen acid. ... Acrylate monomers are esters that contain vinyl groups, that is, two carbon atoms double bonded to each other, directly attached to the carbonyl carbon. ... Plastic is a term that covers a range of synthetic or semisynthetic polymerization products. ... Propylene, also known by its IUPAC name propene, is an organic compound having the chemical formula C3H6. ...

The CAS number of acrylic acid is 79-10-7. CAS registry numbers are unique numerical identifiers for chemical compounds, polymers, biological sequences and alloys. ...

The Basic Acrylic Monomer Manufacturers, Inc. (BAMM) is a trade association of manufacturers and importers of acrylic acid and its basic esters, including butyl acrylate, ethyl acrylate, methyl acrylate and 2-ethylhexyl acrylate.
The remaining one-third of the acrylic acid is used to produce polyacrylic acid, or crosslinked polyacrylic acid compounds, which have been successfully used in the manufacture of hygienic products, detergents, and waste water treatment chemicals.
The manufacture, transportation, and use of acrylic acid are regulated or addressed by a number of government agencies and other expert groups to control exposure to workers and the environment.
ACRYLIC ACID - (Organic Method #28) (3940 words)
The phosphoric acid serves to suppress the ionization of acrylic acid resulting in the retention of the undissociated form of the molecule.
An amount of acrylic acid equivalent to twice the target concentration for a 4-h air sample was spiked onto glass wool contained in a section of glass tubing that was mounted ahead of two sampling tubes.
Acrylic acid standards at 0.7, 1.4, and 2.9 times the target concentration were each injected eight times into the liquid chromatograph using a Waters WISP autosampler.
