• question_answer The compound obtained by the reaction of acetic anhydride and ammonia is: A) $C{{H}_{3}}COON{{H}_{4}}$     B) $C{{H}_{3}}CN$ C) $C{{H}_{3}}CONHC{{H}_{3}}$   D) $C{{H}_{3}}CON{{H}_{2}}$

Key Idea: The reaction of anhydride of ammonia is called ammonolysis. It results in formation of amide. $\underset{acetic\,\,anhydride}{\mathop{{{(C{{H}_{3}}CO)}_{2}}O+2N{{H}_{3}}}}\,\xrightarrow{{}}\underset{acetamide}{\mathop{2C{{H}_{3}}CON{{H}_{2}}}}\,$
