4-Acetoxy-MET (4-Acetoxy-N-methyl-N-ethyltryptamine), also known as metacetin or 4-AcO-MET, is a hallucinogenic tryptamine. It is the acetate ester of 4-HO-MET, and a homologue of 4-AcO-DMT. It is a novel compound with very little history of human use. It is sometimes sold as a research chemical by online retailers.
It is expected that the compound is quickly hydrolyzed into the free phenolic 4-HO-MET by serum esterases, but human studies concerning the metabolic fate of this drug are lacking. To date, no study can conclusively say whether this compound is active at all. There is proof that this is a very active substance.
4-Acetoxy-MET is unscheduled in the United States, but possession and sales of 4-Acetoxy-MET could possibly be prosecuted under the Federal Analog Act if intent to consume can be proven because of its structural similarities to psilocin.
