3-Fluoromethcathinone (also known as 3-FMC is a stimulant of the phenethylamine, amphetamine and cathinone chemical classes that has been sold online as a designer drug. It is a structural isomer of flephedrone (4-fluoromethcathinone).
3-Fluoroisomethcathinone is produced as a by-product when 3-FMC is synthesized, the activity of this compound is unknown.
This chemical's psychoactive effects are yet to be studied scientifically; however, it is suspected to be much like other methcathinones is likely a releaser or reuptake inhibitor of Catecholamines. It is also suspected to lack entactogenic quality.

3-FMC is banned in the Czech Republic.
