Glycidyl methacrylate Usage And Synthesis

Chemical Properties

Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) is a colorless liquid with a fruity odor. Floats on water. (USCG, 1999)
Glycidyl methacrylate
Glycidyl methacrylate is a polyfunctional monomer. It acts as an adhesion promoting crosslinking co-monomer for acrylic and vinyl resins. It is also a reactive colorless diluent. GMA is soluble in ethanol, acetone, diethyl ether, benzene.

Uses

Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) is a common monomer used in the creation of epoxy resins. It is used to provide epoxy functionalization to polyolefins and other acrylate resins.
Glycidyl methacrylate is used in the production of polymer coatings and finishes, adhesives, plastics and elastomers.
Glycidyl methacrylate dextran has been reported to be used as a biocompatible hydrogel. In situ polymerization of GMA with trimethylolpropane trimethacrylate to form macroporous sorbents has also been reported. GMA may also be grafted onto polypropylene.

Preparation

Glycidyl methacrylate is produced from methacrylic acid and glycidol. Glycidol contain both epoxide and alcohol functional groups.It is an enoate ester and an epoxide. It derives from a methacrylic acid and a glycidol.

Reactions

Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) is a kind of functional monomer. Its active vinyl and epoxy groups could be grafted with polyolefin and reacted with the polar groups such as amine, hydroxyl and carboxyl group, respectively. It can also undergo polymerization to form poly (glycidyl methacrylate).

General Description

Colorless liquid with a fruity odor. Floats on water.

Air & Water Reactions

Flammable. Slightly water soluble.

Reactivity Profile

Epoxides, such as Glycidyl methacrylate, are highly reactive. They polymerize in the presence of catalysts or when heated. These polymerization reactions can be violent. Compounds in this group react with acids, bases, and oxidizing and reducing agents. They react, possibly violently with water in the presence of acid and other catalysts.

Health Hazard

The liquid irritates eyes about as much as soap. Prolonged contact with skin produces irritation and dermatitis.

Fire Hazard

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Irritating vapors are generated when heated
