Amides a.k.a. Amide: An amide, also known as an acid amide, is a compound with the functional group RₙEₓNR'₂. Most common are "organic amides", but many other important types of amides are known including phosphor amides and sulfonamides. The term amide refers both to classes of compounds and to the functional group within those compounds.
