What is 4-MPD?
4-MPD (also known as 4-Methylpentedrone and 4-Methyl-α-methylamino-valerophenone), is a stimulant drug of the cathinone class that has been sold online as a designer drug. It is a higher homolog of 4-methylmethcathinone (mephedrone) and 4-methylbuphedrone (4-MeMABP), and the p-methyl derivative of pentedrone.
A related compound, 4-methyl-α-ethylaminopentiophenone (4-MEAP), has been found to be incorrectly sold as 4-methylpentedrone.
The main difference inside a cathinone as well as amphetamine is small. Cathinones differ only by the existence of a ketone in the beta carbon. The substituted cathinone type of compounds could be precisely known as the beta-keto amphetamine. Cathinone is the main psychoactive compound that may be obtained from the new leaves of Catha edulis also known as the Khat plant.
The fundamental structure from the cathinone is really a phenethylamine backbone by having an alkyl substituent in the alpha carbon along with a ketone in the beta carbon. This fundamental structure is modified in many foreseeable ways that are substitution around the aromatic ring, alkylation from the nitrogen or inclusion from the nitrogen atom inside a ring structure, and lastly variation from the alkyl substituent in the alpha carbon.
