  • Direct esterification of acrylic acid (produced by propylene oxidation) with butyl alcohol (catalysts - H2SO4, aromatic sulfo-acids or sulfo-cationites);
  • interesterification of methyl acrylate with butanol;
  • Interaction of ethylene cyanohydrine with butanol in presence of H2SO4 and H2O



    Butyl acrylate is used as a monomer in production of polybutylacrylates, acrylate rubbers and different copolymers.
