CHMA forms homopolymers and copolymers. Copolymers of DHMA can be prepared with acrylic acid and its salts, amides and esters, and with methacrylates, acrylonitrile, styrene, butadiene, unsaturated polyesters and drying oils, etc. CHMA is also a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses, because it readily undergoes addition with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.
TBAA is a monomer used for the production of many polymers and is an intermediate in organic chemical synthesis. Copolymers of TBAA and acrylic acid are useful for thickening aqueous solutions, mixtures or systems that have high performance requirements under high pH conditions.
With two reactive functional groups in the molecule, MBAA easily reacts with other monomers such as acrylamide and acrylic acid, and is widely used as a cross-linking agent for a variety of polymers. Recent applications include photosensitive resins, super-absorbent resins, resins for medical uses, immobilation of micro-organisms and gel for electrophoresis and chromatography.
MPEG 550 is a mono-functional methoxylated PEG (550) methacrylate monomer that features excellent wetting, water solubility, low Tg, and fast surface cure. It is recommended as a versatile intermediate for coatings and polymer modification.
