4-Hydroxybutyl Acrylate (4-HBA)

4-Hydroxybutyl Acrylate (4-HBA) 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 consisting of a methacrylate group with a characteristic high reactivity and a cyclic hydrophobic group. It forms homopolymers and copolymers which can be obtained from acrylic acid and its salts, amides, and esters, etc.

4-Hydroxybutyl Acrylate (4-HBA) is also a very useful feedstock for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds. The monomer can be used to impart the following properties to polymers:
