For many organic compounds such as alcohols and alkanes, the relationship between molar mass and boiling point is generally linear when graphed. However, amides have a very high boiling point and as molar mas increases, the increase in boiling point is not directly proportional and sometimes even decreases (although it remains very high). Whats the exact reason for this?

Sorry if this is a duplicate question.
