Amide formation from carboxylic acid derivatives.

This video talks about the methods to form amides in a laboratory using carboxylic acid and its derivatives. It also talks about why do we add a base in a mixture of acid halide and ammonia to get an amide, or why do we heat a mixture of an acid and ammonia to form an amide. 00:00- Introduction 01:40- Acid and ammonia 2:22- Why heat? 2:45- Acid chloride and ammonia 6:00- Acid chloride and amines 7:16- Use of a base while reacting an acid chloride with ammonia 8:18- Acid anhydride and ammonia 9:11- Ester and ammonia 9:51- Summary Practice this concept -https://www.khanacademy.org/science/class-12-chemistry-india/x6a5fb67b43bb54b9:aldehydes-ketones-and-carboxylic-acids/x6a5fb67b43bb54b9:nomenclature-reactions-of-carboxylic-acids/e/carboxylic-acid-derivatives-and-neutral-nucleophiles Master the concept of "Formation of amides from CADs" through practice exercises and videos - https://www.khanacademy.org/science/organic-chemistry-essentials/x1918b84b5bb1f2e6:nucleophilic-substitution-reactions-of-carboxylic-acid-derivatives/x1918b84b5bb1f2e6:formation-of-amides-from-carboxylic-acid-and-its-derivatives/e/carboxylic-acid-derivatives-and-neutral-nucleophiles.
