Macrolactam - Carboxamide group - Lactam - Secondary carboxylic acid amide - Carboxylic acid derivative - Dialkyl ether - Ether - Thioether - Dialkylthioether - Organoheterocyclic compound - Azacycle - Oxacycle - Organonitrogen compound - Organooxygen compound - Hydrocarbon derivative - Carbonyl group - Organic nitrogen compound - Organic oxygen compound - Organic oxide - Aliphatic heteromonocyclic compound
This compound belongs to the class of organic compounds known as macrolactams. These are cyclic amides of amino carboxylic acids, having a 1-azacycloalkan-2-one structure, or analogues having unsaturation or heteroatoms replacing one or more carbon atoms of the ring. They are nitrogen analogues (the a nitrogen atom replacing the o atom of the cyclic carboxylic acid group ) of the naturally occurring macrolides.
