Is every continuously differentiable function $f:\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ uniformly continuous?

I think no, but am unable to find any counterexample. Any idea. Thanks beforehand.

As posted in the comment by Open Ball, there exists several such functions which are continuously differentiable, but not uniformly continuous. Few of them, being:$x^n,n\ge2; \sin x^n,n\ge2; e^{x^n},n\ge2$etc.
