Diallyl ester of maleic acid. Once polymerized through the vinyl center adjacent to the ester groups, it provides multiple postfunctionalization target sites at the pendant allylic centers. This makes it particularly useful both in acrylic chemistry but also in combination with alkyd and polyester resins.
When employed at very low levels it is an effective site for branching generation in emulsion polymers.
