Acetanilide is a white solid organic compound mainly used in organic synthesis other names of this compound include n-phenylacetamide, acetanilide and acetanil it was formerly used for treating fever and headache and was known by its brand name antifebrin. Experiment 1: synthesis of acetamides from aniline and substituted anilines many of the acetylated [ch 3 –c(=o)-] derivatives of aromatic amines (aka anilines) and phenols are pharmacologically important compounds some of these exhibit distinct analgesic activity two of the.

Tissue concn of nitrobenzene were significantly higher than acetanilide within 24 hr, 78% of the acetanilide dose, but only 50% of the nitrobenzene dose appeared in the urine only 33% of the acetanilide dose was excreted in the feces, versus 155% of nitrobenzene.
Transcript of synthesis of acetanilide organic chemistry outline what is the acetanilide purpose of the experiment hypothesis of the experiment materials results discussion future experiments references to prepare an amide from an amine is the use of a catalyst in this reaction going to accelerate the process of acetylation of one amine to.
Acetanilide is used for the production of 4-acetamidobenzenesulfonyl chloride, a key intermediate for the manufacture of the sulfa drugs it is also a precursor in the synthesis of penicillin  and other pharmaceuticals.
For example, the solubility of acetanilide in ethanol at 0 ºc is about 18g/100ml this means that if you drop 50 grams of acetanilide in 100 ml of ethanol at 0 ºc, about 18 grams will dissolve in the ethanol and the rest (~32g) will remain suspended in the solution.
