4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) also known as 4-BEC is a synthetic cathinone with scientific information stating it has a higher homolog than a few other cathinones. It is believed through controlled laboratory studies to inhibit the uptake of serotonin in human platelets which makes it stronger by 15-fold than methcathinone as an uptake inhibitor of serotonin. However, all studies have been performed in vitro as 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) is only intended for forensic and scientific studies and is not intended for human consumption or veterinary usage.
Since 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) is listed with other cathinones we can take information on these chemicals to learn more about the makeup of this research chemical when compared to others. Cathinones are all stimulants and created using an alkaloid that is in the Catha edulis shrub. Some scientific data has been discovered regarding 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) include the molecular formula, the weight of the formula which is 292.6 and that when purchased from a research chemical manufacturer comes as a crystalline solid.
Laboratories that purchase 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) for further research should store the chemical at -20 degrees Celsius and follow all other instructions for the chemical to remain stable for up to two years. In the majority of cases, 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) will be shipped in wet ice in order to keep the research chemical at the proper temperature. The research data on this chemical is very low with the only known information to is its chemical formula, the physical state, and the molecular weight. Other research needs to be determined such as the boiling point, explosive limits, vapor pressure, and melting point, among other information, to learn if there are any benefits for humans medically or mentally. Until more data is compiled, 4-Bromoethcathinone (hydrochloride) will remain a research chemical for use in controlled laboratories.
