German Version French Version

Collective term for psychotrope substances with Amphetamine related structure, which possesses only two C-atoms in the site chain instead of three. The Phenethylamines are covered like the Amphetamines by the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, Schedule 2 part 1. The nomenclature begins therefore with "2C", followed by the substituent in para position (C, B, I for chlorine, bromine, iodine or T for Thioalkyl), and the last number describes the alkyl chain, 1 for methyl, 2 for ethyl, 7 for propyl).

Phenethylamine itself is a natural occuring alkaloid deriving from the amino acid phenylalanine by enzymatic decarboxylation.

Most important representatives are 2C-B, 2C-T-2 and 2C-T-7, which were synthethisiert by the American drug Pope Alexander Shulgin and described in his book "PHIKAL" 1991. In the USA so far 3 cases of deaths by an overdose of 2C-T-7 are known, in particular in connection with Ecstasy consumption. In the EU, Phenethylamines are so far insignificant.
