    Hello All,

    Can anyone take a look at this site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minoxidil and help me find out all the functional groups there? it is a Minoxidil molecule. I managed to identify the amine and hydroxyl groups. Is the N2H amino or amide?

    Thank you all for your time & help

    Thats it as far as what people typically identify as functional groups. The rest is in the IUPAC name. ...why is my scalp tingling?

    NH2 is an amine. an amide has a carbonyl ( -NC=O )

    there's also a pyrimidine, and a sexy piperidine moeity
