In this study, 2-(bis(cyanomethyl)amino)-2-oxoethyl acrylate (CMA2OEA) monomer, which does not exist in the literature, was synthesized and characterized. Elemental analysis technique, along with classical spectroscopic methods such as FTIR, 1H and 13C NMR, is used in the characterization of the monomer. Further, homopolymer of the CMA2OEA monomer [poly(CMA2OEA)] is synthesized by free radical chain polymerization reaction. Homopolymer synthesized is also characterized by spectroscopic techniques and thermal characterization is investigated by TGA/DTA/DTG thermal analysis methods.
