What is Vinyl Carboxylate?

Vinyl carboxylate is a substance in which a vinyl group has been introduced as an ester to a carboxylic acid, an example of which is acetic acid.

Structual formulaƅ@R-COO-CH=CH2

For example, take vinyl acetate (VAM), one of JVP's main products, and use a carboxylic acid as an ingredient in place of acetic acid to produce a vinyl carboxylate that corresponds to the ingredient acid. Or also, butyric acid can be used to make vinyl butyrate or lauric acid can be used to make vinyl laurate.
The vinyl carboxylate formation method developed by JVP is a superior method because it uses no mercury catalyst, which is used in conventional methods, and can produce products with a high degree of purity.


JVP offers a lineup featuring many types of vinyl carboxylate.
