Amides and Imides

Monoacylamines Rule C-825

825.1 - The ending "-anilide" is retained for N-phenyl-substituted amido groups, being used in the same way as the ending "-amide" (see Rules C-822 and C-824). Locants for substituents in the amine residue are primed. Alkyl substituents on the nitrogen atom are named as prefixes with the locant N-.
