Acrylamido boronic acids are important building blocks for functional polymers but suffer from poor synthetic strategies and unwanted polymerisation. A two-step deprotection of pinacolato methacrylamido phenylene boronic esters to generate 2-, 3- and 4-methacrylamido phenylboronic acids in good yield and purity is reported. Boronic acid containing methacrylamido monomers are now available in good yields for incorporation into polymers.
