Cyclohexyl Methacrylte (CHMA)

Cyclohexyl Methacrylate (CHMA) is an ester of Methacrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a monofunctional 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.

Cyclohexyl Methacrylate (CHMA) is a very useful starting material for chemical synthesis since it easily undergoes addition reactions with a wide range of organic and inorganic compounds.
