TT No. 497: Green Resources for a Multifunctional Chemical : Palm Fatty Hydrazide

Hydrazides are useful compounds having a general formula. They make up a versatile class of nitrogen substituted molecules with a high degree of chemical reactivity. They can be a precursor as well as an intermediate for many important organic molecules. Hydrazides of palm oil contains an amide, an anmmine group and a long-chain alkyl group, R. The importance of hydrazides is due to their chemical structure i.e. the presence of an  amide group attached to a primary amine group. Many interesting and useful chemicals can be derived from this multifunctional structure.
