Mexedrone is a research chemical that is a derivative of Mephedrone. The IUPAC name is 3-methoxy-2-(methylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)propan-1-one with a formula of c12H17NO2 and a molecular mass of 207.27. Since the chemical is so new on the market, we must learn more by checking out research on mephedrone, which is a synthetic stimulant that places Mexedrone in the amphetamine and cathinone classes. Therefore, if you really want to learn more about Mexedrone you will need to learn more about research conducted on mephedrone. Mephedrone is known by several other names and synonyms including 1-Propanone, 2-(methylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)-, 2-(Methylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)-1-propanon, 2-(Methylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)-1-propanone, 2-(Méthylamino)-1-(4-méthylphényl)-1-propanone, 4-methylephedrone and 4-methylmethcathinone, to name just a few.
We must remember that the research we find on mephedrone may be close or similar to Mexedrone, but the structure has been altered so the results can be very different. At this time, Mexedrone is only banned in Sweden, whereas other countries have not classified this chemical.
Research has been published on predictions from different laboratories.
ACD/Labs’ published their predicted results of mephedrone, so this information may be close to the same as Mexedrone, which includes the chemical has two hydrogen acceptors, one hydrogen donors, and three freely rotating bonds. The boiling point is 280.2±23.0 °C at 760 mmHg and it has a flash point of 109.6±22.8 °C with a density of 1.0±0.1 g/cm3.
We may know such information as the chemical formula and the systematic name of Mexedrone number; however, this chemical needs more research in order to determine if there are any medical usages of the chemical along with the chances of addiction and abuse.
ChemAxon published a topology analysis on mephedrone which may help learn more about Mexedrone, which showed the formula to be C11H15NO, and common names of mephedrone to be 4-mmc, mephedrone, 4-methylephedrone, 4-methylmethcathinone and the
IUPAC to be 2-(methylamino)-1-(4-methylphenyl)propan-1-one. The study also showed elemental analysis of the isotope formula of C11H15NO, composition of C (74.54%), H (8.53%), N (7.9%), O (9.03%), isotope composition of C (74.54%), H (8.53%), N (7.9%), O (9.03%) a mass: of 177.2429 and the exact mass to be 177.115364107.
Other research showed Mephedrone which might be close to the same as Mexedrone from pubchem the number of related compounds with annotation, which include 112 in literature, 13 3D structures, 342 bioactivities, 3058 patents, and 20 medications.
Records indicate this chemical that is a derivative to Mexedrone also has several related compounds including 6 with the same connectivity, 3 with the same isotope, 11 with same parent, connectivity, 6 with parent, isotope, 2 with same parent, exact, 3 with mixtures, components, and neutralized forms, 1446 with similar compounds, and 14548 with similar conformers.
If you are still not satisfied with the information, there are several different articles that discuss mephedrone, which of course may help understand what Mexedrone may be capable of in the medical field. One of the articles is "An overview of recent developments in the analytical detection of new psychoactive substances" by Jamie P. Smith, Oliver B. Sutcliffe and Craig E. Banks. Another one is "Detection and quantification of new psychoactive substances (NPSs) within the evolved “legal high” product, NRG-2, using high performance liquid chromatography-amperometric detection" by Khaled Y. Zuway, Jamie P. Smith, Christopher W. Foster, Nikil Kapur, Craig E. Banks, and Oliver B. Sutcliffe.
If you live in other countries, you should also learn the laws governing synthetic research chemicals like Mexedrone before ordering as some might be completely banned even for use in laboratories. Remember, these chemicals have not been tested and in most cases are so new that it may have just been created or discovered. The usage of such chemicals should never be done unless in a controlled situation with professionals that has worked with research chemicals in the past. Mexedrone should only be used by a forensic or scientific laboratory that is licensed to use the schedule of drugs that Mexedrone has been placed. No research chemical on the market today is intended for human or animal consumption as the medical benefits as well as dangers may be present in the compound. Until more research is completed on the advantages or disadvantages, of Mexedrone, it should only be used in a controlled laboratory with experience working with such chemicals and what dangers are possible.
Experimenting with any research chemical such as Mexedrone can be very dangerous as many of these chemicals must be stored at a specific temperature and climate environment or they can become unstable.
