A polyamide is a synthetic polymer created by linking an amino group and that of a carboxylic acid group together. A good example of a polyamide is nylon. The structural units are linked by amide or thioamide groupings.

A polyamide is a polymer that has amide groups in the backbone chain.
Polyamides are used to make nylon which is used in textiles and also cast into solid shapes for cogs and bearings in machines. It is also used to make Kevlar which is used in bulletproof vests.
Polyamides are polymers which are held together with amide structures. Nylon and kevlar are types of polyamides and they are mostly used in textiles and manufacturing. Nylon is used to make the inner structure of the tyre of a car while kevlar is popularly used in making bullet-proof vests because of its strength (five times the strength of steel).
Polyamides are polymers where the repeating units are held together by amide links. They can occur both naturally and artificially, examples being proteins, such as wool and silk.
A polyamide is a polymer containing monomers joined by peptide bonds. Examples include proteins, such as wool and silk. They are commonly used in the textile and automotive industry due to their extreme durability and strength.
Polyamide or a polymeric amide is a polymer containing repeated amide groups.
