Methoxetamine also known as 3-MeO-2-Oxo-PCE and MXE with a IUPAC name of (RS)2-(3-methoxyphenyl)-2-(ethylamino)cyclohexanone is a research chemical. It is a derivative of ketamine, however, it also has structural features that are close to 3-MeO-PCP and eticyclidine. It acts like a serotonin reuptake inhibitor and NMDA receptor antagonist. It is white powder that offers a low solubility in isopropanol but is soluble in ethanol at 10 mg/ml at 25°C
The molecular formula for Methoxetamine is C15H21NO2 with a molecular weight of 247.33 g/mol, an average mass of 247.332703 Da and a monoisotopic mass of 247.157227 Da.
