Acetaminophen is mainly metabolized in the liver, while a small part is deacetylated to form p-aminophenethyl ether. After being further metabolized to iminoquinone, hemoglobin can be oxidized to methemoglobin. When the amount of Phenacetin is large, cyanosis or even severe hypoxia can occur, especially for children. Long-term or excessive use of Phenacetin can cause hemolytic anemia, liver and kidney damage. Due to the high toxicity of Phenacetin, it has been replaced by paracetamol and is now only used in certain compound preparations.


2. How to test Phenacetin?

Take 0.6g of Phenacetin, put it in an Erlenmeyer flask. Then add 50mg of nickel-aluminum alloy, 5ml of 90% ethanol, 10ml of water and 2ml of sodium hydroxide solution. Place Phenacetin in a water bath, heat to reflux for 10 minutes to cool. Filter through a chloride-free filter paper into a 50ml measuring flask. Wash the conical flask and filter paper with water, and put them into the measuring flask, as well as adding water to dilute to the mark. Shake well and divide into 25ml.
