Amides and Imides
Monoacylamines Rule C-823 823.1 - (a) Names of radicals , , , etc., formed by loss of a hydrogen atom from
the NH2 or NHR group of an amide, are derived from the systematic or semi-trivial name of the amide by changing the ending "-amide" to "-amido-", such radical names being used when the
compound contains also a group having priority for citation as principal group. (b) Alternatively the radicals are named as acylamino radicals.
823.2 - Despite Rule C-823.1, radicals derived from amino acids that have trivial names are named only as acylamino radicals, the acyl radical names for
the groups being used (see Rule C-421).
