Amines, Imines, and Nitriles
Lecture no. 17 from the course: Foundations of Organic Chemistry
Taught by Professor Ron B. Davis Jr. | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Turn now to nitrogen, which has played an important role in the chemistry of life since it began. Learn the chemistry of primary, secondary, and tertiary amines, the simplest of nitrogen-containing compounds. Also, consider imines (containing a pi-bond to nitrogen) and nitriles (where two pi bonds are present), including the simplest and most well-known nitrile: hydrogen cyanide.
