Nitrosamines are a family of carcinogens which are formed by the reaction of secondary amines, amides, carbamates, derivatives of urea with nitrite or other nitrogenous agents with the nitrogen in the +3 state.
In synthetic organic chemistry, protection and deprotection of functional groups constitute a crucial strategy in the protection of primary and secondary amines [4-6].
Amine oxides are sometimes also used for the analogous derivation of the primary and secondary amines. Amine oxides are usually used as the protecting group for amines as well as other chemical intermediates.

This experiment was based on some of the secondary amines that could react with sodium nitrite to produce volatile N-nitrosamines (NAms) under acidic conditions [23].
In the LISZn2 was observed that the coordination environment around zinc ion is formed by oxygen atoms from prolyl carboxylate and carbonyl groups, as also by nitrogen atoms of primary and secondary amines.
They warn that chemicals called secondary amines, which are either found in all permanent hair dyes or are formed in them, can penetrate the skin and stay on the hair for weeks, months or even years after the dye is applied.
Dr Emma Meredith, of the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association, said the law forbids using secondary amines in a form that can react in this way.
Also on show will be Q8 Berlioz, a range of soluble cutting and grinding fluids developed to be tolerant to hard and soft water and free of formaldehyde, chlorine and secondary amines. All six grades have reportedly been formulated for the light- to heavy-duty machining of numerous ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys on CNC machines, machining centres, flexible manufacturing systems and all centralised systems.
The temporarily decreased activation energy level was attributed to the autocatalytic effect driven by the formation of tertiary amine once the secondary amines reacted with the epoxy prepolymer.
As to the possibility that at the level of compound (2) there would be potentially a concurrent nucleophilic attack of the secondary amine onto the carbonyl in 2position, a possibility that cannot be theoretically excluded, we performed various attempts to react this carbonyl at the level of compound (5), using primary and secondary amines without any success.
