Applications
Acrylamide is used as a monomer in the synthesis of polyacrylamides, which finds application as water-soluble thickeners in waste water treatment, gel electrophoresis, ore processing and dyes production. In molecular biology, it is used as a carrier as well as involved in the precipitation of small amounts of DNA. It plays an important role as an intermediate in the preparation of N-methylol acrylamide and N-butoxyacrylamide.

Solubility
Slightly soluble in water.

Notes
Hygroscopic. Air and light sensitive. Store in a cool place. Keep the container tightly closed in a dry and well-ventilated place. Incompatible with acids, bases, oxidizing agents, reducing agents, iron and iron salts, copper, aluminum, brass and free radical initiators.
