Se-containing catalysts of organic and inorganic nature were explored for the synthesis of acrylic acid and its esters in different solvents. Newly synthesized Se-containing microgel catalyst shown the best catalytic performance. With microgel catalyst different acrylate monomers can be produced with high yield simply by varying solvent nature
