2-Hydroxypropyl Acrylate (2-HPA)

2-Hydroxypropyl Acrylate (2-HPA) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a monofunctional acrylate monomer with a characteristic high reactivity of methacrylates and a branched hydrophobic moiety. It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc.

2-Hydroxypropyl Acrylate (2-HPA) is also a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.
