Nitrogen Compounds - Organic Building Blocks

Diverse range of Nitrogen Compounds - Organic Building Blocks

Nitrogen forms many thousands of organic compounds. Nitro compounds are obtained by the reaction between nitric acid and an organic compound (called nitration). Most of them are derived from ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, cyanogen, and nitrous or nitric acid. Nitro groups such as amines, amino acids and amides are derived from ammonia. Nitroglycerin and nitrocellulose are esters of nitric acid.  Nitrites are derived from nitrous acid (HNO2). Nitroso compounds are obtained by the action of nitrous acid on an organic compound.
