General description

Acetamide based derivatives are potential anti-microbial, antifungal agents, used as disinfectants. Cigarette smoking triggers acetamide release. It is a minor by-product of paracetamol degradation. Acetamide is carcinogenic in rats.

Application

Acetamide has been used:
  • for the induction of recombinant protein in M. smegmatis
  • as a component of acetamide medium for fungal selection
  • in quenching experiment in mice tissue samples
