Modern chemistry and pharmacy have given us many new chemical compounds which are used to make medicines. These compounds are tested and tried before using them in medicines. Many combinations of these compounds are tried in various conditions before finalizing on their official use. Due to modern tools and research in this field, new compounds have been discovered which help people immensely. Methoxetamine is one such compound which is relatively new. It is a derivative of ketamine. Its chemical formula is C15H21NO2. It has molar mass of 247.33 g/mol. It has a half life of three to six hours. This compound is a white powder in the purest form. It has low solubility in isopropanol. It is however, soluble in ethanol. It was first identified by the European Monitoring Centre for Drug Addiction in 2010. It was identified that the compound was sold as a designer drug.
Since then, this compound has been under testing for various purposes. The experiments to find out the properties and possible uses of Methoxetamine are still ongoing and no substantial results have come forward until now. There have been cases of health hazards due to the consumption of this compound for recreational purposes. This is mainly the reason behind the secrecy of the developments regarding this compound. This compound had also appeared in the scientific literature in January 2012. It was referred as a research chemical but no properties of this compound were revealed in it. Today, it is used only as a supplementary laboratory tests. This compound is not used for human consumption as no clinical trials were done to investigate this research. Further research on this compound is essential to find out the pros and cons of this substance. It is essential to study about all the possibilities regarding this compound in order to know any untapped aspects of this compound.
