Chemical Name or Material Methyl methacrylate

Applications
Methyl methacrylate is used as a monomer in the manufacturing of poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). It is also used in the manufacturing of the co-polymer methyl methacrylate-butadiene-styrene (MBS), which is a modifier for polyvinyl chloride. It plays an important role as the cement used in total hip replacements as well as total knee replacements. It is also involved in the preparation of other methacrylates viz. ethyl methacrylate (EMA), butyl methacrylate (BMA) and 2-ethyl hexyl methacrylate (2-EHMA) and methacrylic acid (MAA), which finds application as an intermediate in the manufacture of coating polymers and textile applications.

Solubility
Slightly miscible with water.

Notes
Incompatible with oxidizing agents, peroxides, amines, bases, acids, reducing agents and halogens.
