Glacial acrylic acid (abbreviated as GAA) is a clear, colorless liquid with a characteristic acrid or tart smell  odor It is miscible with water, alcohols, ethers, and chloroform. Acrylic acid will undergo the typical reactions of a carboxylic acid, as well as reactions of the double bond similar to those of the acrylate esters. It lends itself to polymer preparation as well as use as a chemical intermediate. Acrylate esters, both mono- and multifunctional, are generally prepared from acrylic acid.
