Cocainum Phenylicum consists of a combination of cocaine and phenyl, the univalent radical, C6H5 of phenol. It is a light-colored substance resembling and of the consistence of thick honey. It melts readily, dissolves in alcohol 30 to 50 per cent.
and contains 75 per cent of the alkaloid cocaine. It is used locally in a strength of one-tenth per cent, and appears to possess the same qualities as carbolic acid. It has been recommended in the place of muriate of cocaine.
