Acrylic acid is a high reactive substance; therefore, the handling needs a lot of know-how and experience. To guarantee a save handling it is necessary to understand the stabilizer interactions during the inhibition period. In the current work, we were able to introduce an enhanced stabilization mechanism based on kinetic data and stability investigations. Via a mathematical model these mechanism could be proofed.
