Amines and Amino Acids  

This chapter describes the mechanisms of amines and amino acids. It also notes the two common naming systems of amines, which are known to be one class of organic compounds with nitrogen atoms. Amines are classified in terms of their general formulas, alkyl group, and hydrogen atoms attached to the nitrogen atom. The Gabriel synthesis is a method of successfully making a primary amine. Amino acids have two function groups: an amino group and a carboxylic acid group. Amino acids also polymerize to construct polypeptides. The chapter discusses the effects of pH and zwitterions as well.
