2C-O or 2,4,5-Trimethoxyphenethylamine is a phenethylamine of the 2C family and was first synthesized by Jansen in 1931[citation needed]. It is a positional isomer of the drug mescaline (3,4,5-trimethoxy) and is structurally similar to the drug 2C-D.

Chemistry[edit]

2C-O is a member of a class of chemical compounds commonly known as phenethylamines. Its full chemical name is 2-(2,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)ethanamine; it is also known as 2,4,5-trimethoxyphenethylamine and 2,4,5-TMPEA.

Effects[edit]

Although not centrally active itself, 2,4,5-TMPEA appeared to potentiate the action of mescaline when employed as pretreatment 45 minutes prior to the administration of mescaline.[1]

Dangers[edit]

The toxicity of 2C-O is not known.

Law[edit]

2C-O is unscheduled and unregulated in the United States.

2C-O and all other compounds featured in PiHKAL are Class A drugs in the United Kingdom.
