Abstract : Among monomers utilized in production of polymeric materials, an important place is occupied by acrylic and methacrylic acids and especially their esters. Acrylic and methacrylic monomers can be polymerized and copolymerized with other vinyl monomers by all known methods with the formation of different high-molecular compounds. These polymers and copolymers possess important properties: by significant weather resistance, transparency, resistance to aging, elasticity, water resistance, heat resistance, high mechanical and dielectric characteristics, good adhesive ability, etc. Acrylates and methacrylates found use in all branches of national economy. At present the universal production/consumption of acrylates achieved wide scales and are approximately 650-700 thousand t per annum. However, the increasing demand for these polymeric materials is still restrained by the high cost/value of initial monomers. Therefore a question about the development of the new economical methods of obtaining the acrylic derivatives from the accessible and mass raw material is extremely urgent. (Russian translations).
