General description

Phenacetin Melting Point Standard (Phenacetin) is a lipid-soluble drug with moderate solubility with aqueous solvents. Its oral absorption is based on formulation factors like particle size. Its major metabolic route is O-dealkylation to paracetamol and its minor pathways are deacetylation and hydroxylation to form pphenetidine, 2-hydroxyphenetidine, 2- and 3-hydroxyphenacetin and N-hydroxyphenacetin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Substrate of CYP1A2 and CYP2D6.
