German term or phrase: organic chemical groups
HOw would one translate groups in organic chemistry such as Niederalkenyloxy, Diniederalkylamino-niederalkoxy, acylamino-niederalkoxy, Arylniederalkylamino etc.

All such groups form parts of compounds and a long list appears in the text that I have.
I gues nieder could be used for lower like in lower alkoxy group etc..
