I know that spectroscopy techniques such as absorption spectroscopy can be 
used to analyse paracetamol, but are there any other methods that could be 
used other than spectroscopy?  Perhaps investigating whether Paracetamol 
can act as a ligand, producing coloured complexes with transition metal 
ions??  Paracetamol in structure is as follows: OHC6H4NHC=OCH3, it has a 
phenol group, an amine group and a C=O.
