Oxamide is a white crystalline solid, which is soluble in ethanol, slightly soluble in water and insoluble in diethyl ether. Heating it in air to temperatures above 350°C causes decomposition yielding cyanogen and water. Oxamide is the double amide of oxalic acid, and can be produced by the careful heating of ammonium oxalate.
Oxamide has proved a useful research tool due its ability to form self-assembled monolayers consisting of a hydrogen bonded network.
