Dibenzylpiperazine (DBZP) is a piperazine derivative often found as an impurity in the recreational stimulant drug benzylpiperazine (BZP).[citation needed] Presence of DBZP is a marker for low quality or badly made BZP. It can be made as a reaction byproduct during BZP synthesis, either because the reaction has been run at too high a temperature, or because an excess of benzyl chloride has been used.

Pharmacology and effects[edit]

It is not known to have any stimulant effects in its own right, although this has not been tested.

Toxicity[edit]

The toxicity of DBZP is unknown.
