Labeled derivatives of N-methylolacrylamide (NMA) including 15N-NMA, 13C-NMA, and 13C,15N-NMA were synthesized and purified. A required chemical precursor, 15N-acrylamide, was also prepared. Reported methods for synthesizing unlabeled analogs are noted, and modifications to these methods for achieving the labeled materials are specified. Monomers were examined via 1H, 13C, and 15N nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. Peak assignments and coupling constants are reported for each compound. To our knowledge, this is the first reported publication on the preparation and characterization of 13C-NMA, 15N-NMA, 13C, 15N-NMA, and 15N-acrylamide.
