Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl acrylate (DCPA) is a monofunctional monomer with a fully unsaturated hydrophobic moiety and characteristic high reactivity of acrylates. It is a yellow-colored, aqueous, organic compound with chemical formula C13H16O2. It has distinctive pungent smell. Its boiling point is 81°C. It is usually stored in presence of oxygen, which enables effective functioning of the stabilizer. Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl acrylate is never used with inert gases so as to prevent polymerization. Copolymers of Dihydrodicyclopentadienyl acrylate DCPA) can be manufactured by treatment with amides and esters, acrylic acid and its salts, and with vinyl chloride, maleic acid esters, methacrylates, acrylonitrile, vinyl acetate, styrene, butadiene, drying oils, unsaturated polyesters and vinylidene chloride, etc.
