This group is called an amide group (in most of the world nylons are called polyamides) and it is responsible for the relatively high melting point, strength, and affinity for moisture that nylons exhibit.

Local anaesthetics are divided into two broad categories: the ester group which includes benzocaine and cocaine, and the amide group such as lignocaine and bupivacaine (Clark 2008).
