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.

Primary amides have limited thermal stability and volatize at temperatures above 400[degrees]F, as is typically seen in cast-film production (usually 500[degrees]F to 550[degrees]F) or extrusion coating (usually above 600[degrees]F).
