Several alternative cathinone derivatives of the abused substances mephedrone and methylenedioxy pyrovalerone (MDPV), which have been shown to produce stimulant effects similar to 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine amphetamines and cocaine, have gained attention as recreational legal highs due to their unregulated availability as ingredients in “spice” or other mixtures.1 Pentylone, a cathinone derivative shown to have psychostimulant effects, was recently identified as a component of the designer drug mixture, NRG.2 The physiological, neurological, and toxicological actions of pentylone have not been characterized. This compound is for the forensic analysis of samples that may contain this compound. It is supplied as the hydrochloride salt of pentylone for ease of solubility in aqueous solvents.
