Amines are chemical compounds having the general formula R3N (R is alkyl or aryl). Amines are derivatives of ammonia in which one or more of the hydrogen atoms are replaced by an alkyl or aryl group. Depending on the number of R groups (alkyl or aryl group), amines are classified as primary, secondary and tertiary amines. In organic chemistry, amines are used in the synthesis of numerous derivatives which are endowed with useful properties, such as amino alcohols, amino acids, amides, lactams, imino derivatives, azo compounds, hydrazines, hydrazones, and ureas. Organic compounds with one or more NO2 groups in their molecular structure are called nitro compounds. Nitro compounds are among the largest and most important groups of industrial and laboratory chemicals in use today. Nitronates are tautomeric forms of aliphatic nitro compounds. Nitromethane is an important nucleophilic reagent and finds use as a Michael donor. Nitroalkanes undergo an addition reaction with aldehydes in the nitroaldol reaction. Nitroalkenes are good Michael acceptors and undergo facile Diels-Alder cycloaddition reactions.
