The primary use of acrylamide is in the production of polyacrylamide polymers [ATSDR 2009]. Secondary applications include use as a chemical intermediate in the production of dyes and organic substances, such as N-methylol acrylamide and N-butoxyacrylamide, and as a binder and retention aid in pulp and paper production. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) [2009] reported that in 2006 and 2007 the demand for acrylamide in the United States was 245 and 253 million pounds, respectively.
