Summary: The present invention relates to a catalytic method for the synthesis of primary amides from various carboxylic acids derivatives in combination with inexpensive nitrogen sources. The process uses carboxylic acids in their intact form, so there are no activating agents. Urea is employed as a neutral nitrogen source which provides two nitrogen groups and CO2 and water are formed as byproducts.
