Structure of the acryloyl group
In organic chemistry, the acryloyl group is a form of enone with structure H2C=CH-C(=O)-; it is the acyl group derived from acrylic acid. The preferred IUPAC name for the group is prop-2-enoyl, and it is also known as acrylyl or simply (and incorrectly) as acryl. Compounds containing an acryloyl group can be referred to as "acrylic compounds".
An acrylic compound is typically an ?,?-unsaturated carbonyl compound: it contains a carbon-carbon double bond and a carbon-oxygen double bond (carbonyl) separated by a carbon-carbon single bond, thus possessing properties characteristic for both functional groups:
at the C=C bond: electrophilic addition of acids and halogens, hydrogenation, hydroxylation and cleavage of the bond,
