About This Quiz and Worksheet

Inside this quiz and worksheet combo, you are looking at the reactions of amides. Questions focus on specific reagents you would use to make a carboxylic acid, and the type of classification when a hydrogen atom attaches to a nitrogen atom.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

Your understanding of these reactions is tested with questions on these topics:

  • Using a reagent when reducing an amide to an amine
  • Converting an amide to a nitrile
  • Dangerous gases formed when an amide reacts with thionyl chloride
  • Classifying an amide with attached hydrogen and nitrogen atoms

Skills Practiced

  • Information recall - remember what you have learned about dangerous gases in chemistry and their reactions
  • Knowledge application - use what you know to answer questions about amide conversion
  • Defining key concepts - ensure that you can name an amide classification based on a description
