General description

Butyl methacrylate is an organic compound that belongs to the class of methacrylate esters and is commonly used in the production of various polymer materials. It can be copolymerized with other monomers to synthesize copolymers with tailored properties. The resulting copolymers find use in numerous fields, including automotive coatings, textiles, adhesives, contact lenses, and dental resins.

Application

Butyl methacrylate (BMA) can be used as:
  • A Monomer to synthesize waterborne butyl methacrylate (co)polymers latexes via emulsion polymerization for the development of coating materials for slow release-fertilizers.
  • A matrix polymer in the preparation of LDH/poly (butyl methacrylate) nanocomposites, which can improve the mechanical properties and thermal stability of the resulting nanocomposites.
  • A monomer to synthesize styrene and butyl methacrylate copolymers for use in leather finishing. Increasing the BMA content of the copolymer increases the water resistance and decreases the water vapor permeability of the leather.
  • A monomer for the preparation of monolithic columns on microfluidic chips. These columns can be used for a wide range of applications, such as the separation and analysis of complex mixtures of compounds, the preconcentration of samples, and the development of new microfluidic analytical devices.
