• metabolism
  • While the causes of a hangover are still poorly understood, several factors are known to be involved including acetaldehyde accumulation, changes in the immune system and glucose metabolism, dehydration, metabolic acidosis, disturbed prostaglandin synthesis, increased cardiac output, vasodilation, sleep deprivation and malnutrition.

  • CH3CHO
  • As implied by its name, it is a trimeric species formed from the reaction of acetaldehyde and ammonia: 3 CH3CHO + 3 NH3 → (CH3CHNH)3 + 3 H2O Studies using NMR spectroscopy indicate that the three methyl groups are equatorial, thus the molecule has C3v point group symmetry. (wikipedia.org)
  • acid
  • Metaldehyde is obtained in moderate yields by treatment of acetaldehyde with various acid catalysts, such as hydrogen bromide. (wikipedia.org)
