4-Dimethylaminophenol (DMAP) is an aromatic compound containing both phenol and amine functional groups. It has the molecular formula C8H11NO.

Uses

4-Dimethylaminophenol has been used as an antidote for cyanide poisoning.[1] It has also been shown to be effective in treating hydrogen sulfide toxicity.[2]

It works by generating methemoglobin.[3]

This is suitable as an emergency treatment only; treatment must be followed up with sodium thiosulfate or cobalamin.

In an animal model, it has shown effectiveness when given intramuscularly.[4] Though, intramuscular injection should be avoid due to the probability of muscular necrosis after injection. Intravenous injection is recommended in a dose of 250 mg.[5]
