Nitroamines are organic compounds containing a nitro group bonded to an amine. The parent inorganic compound, where R1 = R2 = H, is nitramide, H2N–NO2.

Nitrosaminenoun

(organic compound) Any of a class of carcinogenic organic compounds containing this group, prepared by the reaction of amines with nitrites.
