1 - 10 of 500


Amines and Amides Amine - an ammonia molecule (NH3) in which one or more H atoms are substituted by an alkyl or aromatic group. Amide - an organic compound with a carbonyl functional group (C=O) bonded to a nitrogen atom. Amines are the smaller and simpler products of the decomposition of larger and more complex organic compounds like proteins. They often have foul odours, as do many nitrogen compounds, such as the smell of rotting fish and decomposing animal tissue and are produced by...

Classification of Amines

Amines are aliphatic and aromatic derivatives of ammonia. Amines, like ammonia, are weak bases (Kb = 10−4 to 10−6). This basicity is due to the unshared electron pair on the nitrogen atom. Classification and nomenclature of amines Amines are classified as primary, secondary, or tertiary based upon the number of carbon-containing groups that are attached to the nitrogen atom. Those amine compounds that have only one group attached to the nitrogen atom are primary, while those with two or three...

Hydrocarbon Derivative: Amines

Hydrocarbon Derivative: Amines Amines are a type of hydrocarbon derivative, and they are used in many ways in society. Several companies use amines in products such as drugs and medicines. Also, in nature, amino acids help the body make proteins, and amines are found in many vitamins. For example, DOW Chemicals “plays an important role in commonly used products found around the world” by using amines in the manufacturing of energy drinks, detergents, insulin, etc. This is a very large industry...

Classification Tests for Carboxylic Acid and Derivatives

Schotten-Bauman Reaction. It is thereaction with an alcohol to yield an ester. Thealcohol used here was ethanol. Again for acetylchloride and acetic anhydride, the reaction usedwas aminolysis: anilide formation. Aminolysis isthe reaction with ammonia or amine to yield anamide. In this case, aniline was the ammonia andanilide, an amide, was produced. Hydroxamicacis test was used for ethyl acetate andacetamide.Through this experiment, students are able tovisualize, through the different reactions, thenecleophilic...

What Comprises a Penicillin Structure?

difference lies in the group that is placed after the unified functional group called a penam. The penam is a characteristic feature of the Penicillin family of drugs. A penam group contains a ketone with one R group consisting of a secondary amine. This secondary amine bridges the ketone to the Beta-lactam ring that is a four membered ring with nitrogen bonded to a carbonyl group. That ring is attached to another ring that is considered a cyclopentyl-thioether that is a cyclic ether with a sulfur atom...

Fractionation of Amino Acid

from the column by an alkaline solution, usually sodium hydroxide since it may interfere with the Sakaguchi method (Li et al, 2008). Conclusion The reaction with ninhydrin reagent shows a positive test when there is a change in colour (primary amines will give a blue product). In addition, a-naphthol and sodium hypochlorite react with the aforementioned compound form red-orange complexes. References 1. James, V., Benson, J.R., 1972.
