Chemistry modifications are usually performed to introduce specific group that can increase properties and functionality of materials. In this study, we present the synthesis of six new functionalized monomers prepared by nucleophilic substitution reactions. Reaction of aliphatic and aromatic amines with acryloyl chloride at -20ºC, in presence of triethylamine allowed the synthesis of the corresponding amides. Proton nuclear magnetic resonance ( 1 H NMR) spectroscopy, Fourier-transform infrared

These compounds emerged as potentially attractive monomers since they can be used to obtain stimuli-sensitive polymeric materials, due to the presence of amide and pyridine groups.
