amic acids

Carbamoyl carboxylic acids, i.e. compounds containing a carboxy and a carboxamide group, e.g. 5-carbamoylnicotinic acid.
In systematic nomenclature replacement of the '-ic' suffix of a dicarboxylic acid by '-amic' is limited to dicarboxylic acids that have a trivial name. e.g. HOC(=O)CH2C(=O)NH2 malonamic acid (2-carbamoylacetic acid).
