Dihydrocodeinone Enol Acetate, or Thebacon, formerly marketed as its hydrochloride salt under the trade name Acedicon, is a semisynthetic opioid that is derived from Thebaine. It was previously used as an antitussive, primarily in Europe although it is no longer in common use. It is the esterification product of the enol tautomer of hydrocodone (dihydrocodeineone).

Dihydrocodeinone enol acetate's analgesic and antitussive potency is slightly more than that of its parent compound hydrocodone.

Dihydrocodeinone enol acetate is a controlled substance.
