A student hydrolyses a protein (made from amino acids) with NaOH. There is an amide at the bottom and it turns into a Carboxylate...Any ideas as to why?Name:  Screenshot 2020-11-11 124909.png

I understand everything else, but my book says nothing about amides getting replaced by O-Na+

That Q is taken from F324, which makes me think that you're now doing OCR A.

6.2.3 (b) the acid and base hydrolysis of: (ii) the amide groups in polyamides.

It is on the spec. I bet it will be in your book. Maybe you're looking in the wrong section. Find the section that deals with 6.2.3 i.e. condensation polymers.
