Acetophenetidine, also known as phenacetin, is a white crystalline powder with a faint odor. It is commonly used as a pain reliever, an antipyretic, and a mild sedative.
When rubber is exposed to Acetophenetidine, it can cause softening and swelling of the material. This can lead to an increase in permeability, leading to potential failure. Additionally, the rubber may become brittle and crack or tear if exposed to the chemical for extended periods of time. The rubber may also experience accelerated aging and may become discolored due to the presence of the chemical.
