    I need to investigate the percentage purity of paracetamol in a tablet and its kinetics.....

    how do i work out the percentage purtiy?i know i have to extract and purify the paracetamol, but then what?

    also, what do i react it with and standardise it with to find out the reaction kinetics i.e. order of reaction... i know its something to do with ammonium cerium(IV) nitrate solution but not sure what to do

    essentially, i got noo idea what im doing :confused:

    Do a titration maybe? Then calculate the number of moles from the reacting ratio, actual and theoretical yields. I've got no idea what paracetamol consists of or what it would react with though.
