I don't think Acesodyne is a chemical, it just means it relieves pain.

According to Webster it can mean any drug that relieves pain.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Substituent

Might explain the ending of the chemical
And
Acetone
Acetic acid
Acetylsalic acid (aspirin)

As close as I got from at least figuring out the formula

sodium acetate?
"ace" and "sod" are in the name, and it is possible to make (marginally effective) cold packs with it.

It is more effective in 'hot packs' (for that purpose, a supersaturated solution of sodium acetate is often used).

I know I make a foolish assumptions to try to figure out the formula going of of notging but the name
Ethene derived chemical some thing with two or the carbons hence ace

Also https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitroso
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/S-Nitrosothiol

No Im not saying there is nitrogen in this compound
Just that it may have the same bond as nitro__ so
And nitro_so_thiol

All I am thinking about is why you have revived a 3 week old thread to make that comment.

I believe it is there because the OP is annoyed that cold packs are being stripped of their "useful" reagents.

According to Merriam-Webster, "acesodyne" is an archaic synonym for analgesic.

It is probably unrelated to the composition in this case. I'mma go out on a limb and guess KNO3, the active ingredient in Sensodyne toothpaste.
