Can anyone explain to me how Paracetamol, ephedrine, benzocaine and phenacetin exist in acidic and alkaline solutions. I realise that 3 are esters and one is amine but I can't find any good diagrams for any one of the structures which exsist in acid or alkaline conditions. I also want to know more about the conjugation present within these molecules.
