Alpha-imino acid - Nitronic acid - Carboxylic acid salt - Monocarboxylic acid or derivatives - Carboxylic acid - Organic nitrogen compound - Organic oxygen compound - Organic oxide - Hydrocarbon derivative - Organic salt - Organooxygen compound - Organonitrogen compound - Carbonyl group - Organic cation - Aliphatic acyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as alpha-imino acids. These are organic acids containing an imino group attached to a carbon, which in turn is immediately linked to a carboxyl group. They have the generic structure RN=CC(=O)OH or RN=CC(=O)[O-] (salt form), where R is any atom.
