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.
