amide

(ăm`īd), organic compound formed by reaction of an acid chloride, acid anhydride, or ester with an amine. Under strong acidic conditions an amide can be hydrolyzed to yield an amine and a carboxylic acid. The reverse of this process results in the loss of water and is used in nature to link amino acids to form proteins. See amino groupamino group,
in chemistry, functional group that consists of a nitrogen atom attached by single bonds to hydrogen atoms, alkyl groups, aryl groups, or a combination of these three. An organic compound that contains an amino group is called an amine.

, in chemistry, functional group that consists of a carbon atom joined to an oxygen atom by a double bond and to a hydroxyl group, OH, by a single bond. Carboxylic acids are compounds whose molecules contain a carboxyl group that is joined to a hydrogen atom, an

The reaction between terminal amine groups and acrylic acid gives rise to the formation of amidic bond (20), (40).
The good solubility of the poly(amic acid) precursors in amidic solvents makes possible the introduction into their solutions of metal oxide precursors and of the water required for the hydrolysis process.
Therefore, the only change that takes place is the carboxylic and amidic moieties of the repeat units when they come into contact and taking place into what is known as dehydrocyclization.
