A hydrazone is a class of organic compounds with the structure R2C=NNR2. They are related to ketones and aldehydes by the replacement of the oxygen with the NNR2 functional group. They are formed usually by the action of hydrazine on ketones or aldehydes.
Additional recommended knowledge
The formation of aromatic hydrazone derivatives is used to measure the concentration of low molecular weight aldehydes and ketones, e.g. in gas streams. For example, dinitrophenylhydrazine coated onto a silica sorbent is the basis of an adsorption cartridge. The hydrazones are then eluted and analyzed by HPLC using a UV detector.
