Vinyl Acetate/Crotonates/Vinyl Neodecanoate Copolymer
Polyvinyl acetate is an ingredient in white glue, and
is a copolymer with
in latex paints.
copolymer of vinyl acetate and vinyl alcohol
It is a copolymer with poly methyl
in acrylic latex paints, where the hydrophobic PMMA is surrounded
by hydrophilic polyvinyl acetate molecules.
Such a suspension of a hydrophobic polymer wrapped in a hydrophilic
polymer is called a latex.
A copolymer is a polymer made up of two or more different building
blocks, called monomers.
Many common plastics are made from simple building blocks
called vinyl monomers. These are little molecules that
contain carbon double bonds. The simplest one is ethylene.
Ethylene molecules can join together into immensly long chains,
converting the double bond into a single bond as they join to
