Methyl acrylate is a monomer used in the preparation of polymers having rigid, flexible, ionic, nonionic, hydrophobic, or hydrophilic properties. It is involved in the production of acrylate fiber, which is used to weave synthetic carpets. It plays an important role as a reagent in the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates and alfa ω-dicarboxylic acid esters. It is a good nucleophile and a michael acceptor to prepare polyamidoamine (PAMAM) dendrimers.
