    From a phenol add conc. HNO3 & a conc. H2SO4 catalyst at <55oC
    This gives a phenol with a NO2 group attached (I can't draw it here or be bothered to work out the name). To that you add tin (? - not sure but thats whats in my notes) and conc. HCl under reflux.
    This changes the NO2 group to NH2.
    Then finally you add CH3COCl and an AlCl3 catalyst and heat under reflux to give paracetamol & HCl.
