3,4-methylenedioxy-phenyl-2-propanoneis a chemical compound
consisting of phenylacetone substituted with a methylenedioxy
It is a chemical precursor of MDA, MDMA (more commonly known as
"Ecstasy" or "XTC"), MDEA and related chemicalsMDP2P is most
commonly synthesized by oxidizing the plant oil safrole or its
isomer isosafrole using the Wacker oxidation or peroxyacid
3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-propanone (MDP-2-P or PMK) was prepared
by two different routes, i.e. by oxidizing isosafrole in an acid
medium and by 1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-nitropropene reduction.
The final product-MDP-2-P was subjected to GC/MS analysis.
The intermediates and reaction by-products were identified and the
‘route specific’ impurities were established.
3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)butan-2-amine (MDP-2-MB, MBDB) is a new
homologue of N-methyl-1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)propan-2-amine (MDMA),
which is strictly controlled as a narcotic.
As part of our continuous survey on illegal designer drugs in the
Japanese market, we found that
N-methyl-4-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)butan-2-amine (MDP-3-MB, HMDMA)
was being sold as MBDB.
As this is the first time that HMDMA has been revealed to be in
market distribution, and its physico-chemical data is thus far
unreported, we describe the structure elucidation of HMDMA and
comparative analysis with related compounds.
The impurity profiles were obtained by means of GC/MS, some reaction
by-products were identified by means of the EI mass spectra
including low energy EI mass spectra and ‘route specific’ impurities

(compound 18, Table 2),
3-methyl-6,7-methylenedioxyisoquinoline-1,4-dione (compound 15,
Table 1) and N-cyclohexyloacetamide (compound 3, Table 1) were found
to be the synthesis markers of greatest importance.
