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.
