amide

 [am´īd]
any compound derived from ammonia by substitution of an acyl radical for hydrogen, or from an acid by replacing the -OH group by -NH2.

am·ide

, primary amidesecondary amidetertiary amide (am'īd, am'id),
A substance derived from ammonia by replacing hydrogen atoms with acyl groups, R-CO-NH2. Replacement of one hydrogen atom results in formation of a primary amide; of two hydrogen atoms, a secondary amide; and of three hdyrogen atoms, a tertiary amide. Amides can also be derived from a carboxylic acid by replacing a carboxylic OH with NH2 from a carboxylic acid by replacement of a carboxylic OH by NH2. Replacement of one hydrogen atom constitutes a primary amide; that of two hydrogen atoms, a secondary amide; and that of three atoms, a tertiary amide.

am·ide

(am'īd)
A substance formally derived from ammonia through the substitution of one or more of the hydrogen atoms by acyl groups, R-CO-NH2, or from a carboxylic acid by replacement of a carboxylic OH by NH2. Replacement of one hydrogen atom constitutes a primary amide; that of two hydrogen atoms, a secondary amide; and that of three atoms, a tertiary amide.

Other slips based on secondary amides have almost twice the molecular weight of primary amides and thus migrate more slowly in polyolefins.
Introduced in the late 1990s, non-migratory slips have molecular weights 30 to 50 times greater than primary and secondary amides. Their large size does not allow them to diffuse through a polymer, so their COF reduction is provided by the slip molecules that end up on the surface during extrusion.
The performance of primary and secondary amides depends on many factors:
Akzo's new antislip agents for engineering resins--Armid OPA and Armid SSA--are secondary amides that are reportedly less volatile at higher process temperatures and can lead to higher throughput speeds.
Crodamides are a line of fatty acid amides, which include primary amides (erucamide, oleamide, and stearamide), secondary amides (stearyl and oleyl erucamide, etc.), and tertiary amides (N,N-dimethylamides).
* Kemamide S-80, E-180, P-181, S-221 and E-221 secondary amides are slip and antiblock agents, which can withstand processing temperatures surpassing 550 F.
Crodamides are a line of fatty acid amides, which include primary amides (erucamide, oleamide, and stearmide), secondary amides (stearly and oley erucamide, etc.), and tertiary amides (N,N-dimethylamides).
