Chemical Description 

  • Methacrylic acid (MAA) is a vital organic compound known for its wide-ranging applications across various industries. With a chemical formula of C4H6O2, MAA belongs to the family of acrylic acids and is characterized by a double bond between carbon and oxygen atoms within the ester group.
  • This colorless liquid possesses a pungent odor and exhibits unique physical properties. It has a relatively low melting point of around -15 degrees Celsius and a boiling point of approximately 160 degrees Celsius. With a molar mass of approximately 86.09 g/mol, MAA demonstrates a density of 1.02 g/cm³.
  • It has vapor pressure of 7 mmHg (20 °C).
  • MAA is sparingly soluble in water but readily dissolves in organic solvents such as ethanol and acetone, facilitating its use in various chemical processes and formulations. Under suitable conditions, MAA polymerizes easily to form water-soluble polymers with diverse applications.
  • Primarily, MAA is utilized in the production of polymers and copolymers, including acrylic resins, coatings, adhesives, and elastomers. Its properties, such as flexibility, weather resistance, and durability, make it well-suited for applications in automotive coatings, construction materials, and medical devices.
  • However, it's essential to handle MAA with caution due to its potential health hazards. Inhalation or ingestion of MAA can pose health risks, leading to skin irritation, allergic reactions, and eye problems upon contact.
  • Proper storage and handling procedures are crucial to minimize these risks and ensure workplace safety.
  • Furthermore, the release of MAA into the environment can have adverse effects on air, water, and soil quality. Therefore, responsible disposal methods must be implemented to mitigate environmental impact and promote sustainability.
  • Methacrylic Acid (MAA) stands as a versatile chemical compound with significant industrial importance. Its wide-ranging applications, coupled with proper handling and disposal practices, underscore its role in driving innovation and progress while ensuring environmental stewardship and workplace safety.
