About the product

NVA™ monomer

N-Vinylacetamide (NVA™ monomer), a nonionic monomer, is soluble in water and various organic solvents, and thus it is polymerizable by a process that can be selected from among various radical polymerization processes depending on the objective. Copolymers of NVA™ monomers can exhibit practical characteristics in addition to those common with the existing hydrophilic polymers.
