Ethyl acrylate can be prepared by several industrial methods. Acrylonitrile can be reacted with ethanol using sulfuric acid as a catalyst to produce ethyl acrylate. It may also be prepared from acetylene, carbon monoxide and ethanol.
Ethyl acrylate will readily polymerize upon standing and polymerization is accelerated by heat, light, and peroxides.
Ethyl acrylate is used in the production of polymers including resins, plastics, rubber, and denture material.
Ethyl acrylate is a carcinogen and should be handled with extreme caution. It can irritate the nose, throat and lungs. Ethyl acrylate is flammable and highly reactive.
