General chemical structure of an anilide

Anilides (or phenylamides) are a class of chemical compounds which are acyl derivatives of aniline.

Preparation[edit]

Aniline reacts with acyl chlorides or carboxylic anhydrides to give anilides. For example, reaction of aniline with acetyl chloride provides acetanilide (CH3-CO-NH-C6H5). At high temperatures, aniline and carboxylic acids react to give anilides.[1]
