Pentedrone, also known as 2-(methylamino)-1-phenylpentan-1-one or α-methylamino-valerophenone, is a designer drug with stimulant effects, which has been found since 2010 as an ingredient in a number of "bath salt" mixes sold as legal highs. On January 28, 2014, the DEA listed it, along with 9 other synthetic cathinones, on the Schedule 1 with a temporary ban, effective February 27, 2014.
A forensic standard of Pentedrone is available, and the compound has been posted on the Forendex website of potential drugs of abuse.
