Synthesis of several aliphatic and aromatic amides and diamides are described in this report. The compounds infrared spectra are given. These are candidate compounds as high-temperature liquid phases to be used in gas chromatography for the class separation of aromatic and aliphatic hydrocarbon compounds. The compounds discussed are N,N-bis2-cyanoethylbenzoyl amide, 4- methoxy-N,N-biscyanoethylbenzoyl amide, 4-cyano-N,N-bis2-cyanoethylbenzoyl amide, N,N-tetra2-cyanoethyloxalya diamide, and N,N-tetra2cyanoethyladipyl diamide.
