Nitrilimines or nitrile amides are a class of organic compounds sharing a common functional group with the general structure R-CN-NR corresponding to an amine bonded to the N-terminus of a nitrile. The dominant structure for the parent compound nitrilimine is that of 1 in scheme 1 with a C-N triple bond and with a positive charge on nitrogen and two lone pairs and a negative charge on the terminal nitrogen. Other structures such as hypervalent 2, allene 3, allylic 4 and carbene 5 are not relevant.
