The molecular structures of benzamide, acrylamide, caprolactam, salicylamide, and sulfanilamide are shown in Figure 1.
All of the structures of benzamide, acrylamide, caprolactam, salicylamide and sulfanilamide have amide groups.
For sulfanilamide, in the second derivatives results, 54, 60, 66, 72, 74, 81[cm.sup.-1] are observed (54, 59, 67, and 73 [cm.sup.-1] in the absorption spectrum), so 73 [cm.sup.-1] band is formed by 72 and 74 [cm.sup.-1] bands; for caprolactam, 71 [cm.sup.-1] band is formed by 66, 69, and 71 [cm.sup.-1] child-bands; for acrylamide, weak band at 48 [cm.sup.-1] is emphasized in the second derivatives results, 67 [cm.sup.-1] band mainly has several child-bands: 64, 67, 70, 74, and 82 [cm.sup.-1]; for salicylamide, 40, 48, 54, 64, 69, 79 [cm.sup.-1] bands are observed compared to 48, 54, and 80 [cm.sup.-1] in the absorption spectrum.
