Amides

Postby cmmurphy_4G » Tue Mar 08, 2016 2:17 pm

On page 47 in the organic chem textbook, the Amide listed on the table is CH3CONCH3 and then on page 48, they give CH3CONH2. Can an amide functional group be located anywhere in a molecule (like the middle or the end)?

And just to clarify, its an amide functional group if theres a Carbon double bonded to an Oxygen and single bonded to a Nitrogen?

I believe amide functional groups are usually located on the end of the carbon chain such that they can be labelled the carbon atom one.

Yes, an amide functional group has one carbon with a double bond to an oxygen and two single bonds, one of which is to a nitrogen.
