Wednesday Word: Amide

Amide - noun.

Today's WOTD takes you back to chemistry class! An Amide is a compound with the general formula RC(=O)NR′R″, where R, R', and R″ represent organic groups or hydrogen atoms. You may have noticed amide as a suffix such as carboxamide. High school chemistry was a long time ago, so I'll defer to Wikipedia's definition today!
