This synthetic cathinone analog is a primary urinary metabolite of 3,4-Dimethylmethcathinone. 3,4-Dimethylmethcathinone, also known as 3,4-DMMC, is a synthetic cathinone and stimulant that first appeared in 2010. This certified solution standard is suitable for LC/MS or GC/MS 3,4-DMMC testing applications in forensic analysis, urine drug testing or clinical toxicology.

Description

3,4-Dimethylmethcathinone (hydrochloride) is a potential designer drug with combined features of amphetamines, cathinones, and phenethylamines. It is structurally related to 4-methylmethcathinone (4-MMC), a psychoactive compound that has been identified in products sold as bath salts and plant food.The physiological and toxicological properties of this compound have not been elucidated. This product is intended for research and forensic applications.

Analogs and derivatives of traditional illicit drugs are ever increasing in variety and creativity. Staying abreast of the new developments is a constant challenge for every forensic laboratory. Recently, a seizure from Australian Customs Service presented our laboratory with the designer cathinone 3,4-dimethylmethcathinone (3,4-DMMC). Gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS), liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC/MS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, infrared (IR) spectroscopy, and ultraviolet (UV) spectrophotometry were employed to analyze the spectroscopic characteristics of this cathinone. As an analog, 3,4-DMMC exhibits similar if not identical IR and UV profiles to mephedrone (4-MMC) and methcathinone; however, the retention time from GC is unique as expected, and the electron impact fragmentation pattern is consistent with the fragmentation pattern of other cathinones. The chemical shifts of the carbons and hydrogens were assigned by both one- and two-dimensional NMR techniques, while the molecular weight was confirmed by LC/MS.
