In the title compound, C7H10N2O2, the dimethylamino group is twisted slightly relative to the acrylate fragment, forming a dihedral angle of 11.6 (1)°. In the crystal, molecules are linked via pairs of bifurcated C-H/HO hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers, which are further connected by C-HN hydrogen bonds into chains along the a-axis direction.
