N, N'-Methylenebisacrylamide (MBAA), which is an important raw material in a widely industrial area, was synthesized using convenient catalysts. The synthesized monomer was fully characterized by the elemental analysis, fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, GC/MS, and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis. Six different homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts were used to obtain maximum monomer yield. The MBAA was obtained with 95% yield by using Cu(II) catalyst containing carboxylate groups ligands.
