Methylone (Item No. 10986) is a β-ketone analog of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (3,4-MDMA; Item No. 13971) that has been detected in products marketed as bath salts, plant food, and tablets.1,2 Similar to 3,4-MDMA, it acts on components of the monoaminergic systems.3,4,5 5-methoxy Methylone is a cathinone derivative that bears a methoxy group similar to various tryptamine analogs including 5-methoxy MiPT (Item No. 11482), which are known to potently inhibit monoamine transport function.5 The pharmacological and toxicological properties of this compound are not known. This product is intended for forensic and research purposes.
