Amine-acid chloride reaction. Fumes of hydrogen chloride (HCl) are given off when an amine (orange liquid in pipette) reacts with an acid chloride (also known as an acyl chloride). The other product will be an amide. An amine is centred around a nitrogen atom, which in the amide has been combined with the carbonyl group from the acid chloride. This class of reactions is known as Schotten-Baumann reactions.
