Fenamic acid is a molecule which serves as a parent structure for several non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, including mefenamic acid, tolfenamic acid, flufenamic acid, and meclofenamic acid.

This compound may be synthesized by the reaction of 2-chlorobenzoic acid and aniline, with base and copper oxide catalyst in the Goldberg reaction.[1]

The self-condensation of fenamic acid yields acridone.[1]
