Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl Acrylate (DCPA)

Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl Acrylate (DCPA) is an ester of Acrylic acid and is used as a raw material component in the synthesis of polymers. The ester is a difunctional monomer consisting of an acrylate 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.

Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl Acrylate (DCPA) is also a very useful starting material for chemical syntheses because it readily undergoes addition reactions with a wide variety of organic and inorganic compounds.

In order to prevent polymerization, Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl Acrylate (DCPA) must always be stored under air, and never under inert gases. The presence of oxygen is required for the stabilizer to function effectively. It has to contain a stabilizer and the storage temperature must not exceed 35 °C. Under these conditions, a storage stability of one year can be expected upon delivery. In order to minimize the likelihood of overstorage, the storage procedure should strictly follow the “first-in-first-out” principle. For extended storage periods over 4 weeks it is advisable to replenish the dissolved oxygen content. Storage tanks and pipes should be made of stainless steel or aluminum. Storage tanks, pumps and pipes should be earthed.
