CARBOXYLIC ACID DERIVATIVES: NUCLEOPHILIC ACYL SUBSTITUTION 537 ( e ) The ending - amide reveals this to be a compound of the type . ( f ) This compound differs from 2-phenylbutanamide in part ( e ) only in that it bears an ethyl sub- stituent on nitrogen. ( g ) The - nitrile ending signiFes a compound of the type RC > N containing the same number of carbons as the alkane RCH 3 . 20.2 The methyl groups in N , N -dimethylformamide are nonequivalent; one is cis to oxygen, the other is trans. The two methyl groups have different chemical shifts. Rotation about the carbon–nitrogen bond is required to average the environments of the two methyl groups, but this rotation is relatively slow in amides as the result of the double-bond character im- parted to the carbon–nitrogen bond, as shown by these two resonance structures.
