3-Fluoromethcathinone, also known as 3-FMC, is a member of the phenethylamine, amphetamine and cathinone chemical classes. It is a stimulant drug which is reported to be contained in some legal highs.[1] 3-Fluoroisomethcathinone is produced as a by-product when 3-FMC is synthesised, the activity of this compound is unknown.[2]


This chemical's psychoactive effects are yet to be studied scientifically, however it is suspected to be much like mephedrone, though it is also suspected to lack entactogenic quality.[2]
