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


4-Dimethylaminophenol has been used as an antidote for cyanide poisoning.[1]

It works by generating methemoglobin. [2]

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.[3]
