Succinimide is a cyclic imide with the formula C4H5NO2. It is used in a variety of organic syntheses, as well as in some industrial silver plating processes.
Succinimides refers to compounds that contain the succinimide group. These compounds have some notable uses. Several succinimides are used as anticonvulsant drugs, including ethosuximide, phensuximide, and methsuximide. Succinimides are also used to form covalent bonds between proteins or peptides and plastics, which is useful in a variety of assay techniques.
