Diphenyl-2-pyridylmethane is a stimulant that is related to desoxypipradrol. A 2012 report by the UK ACMD claimed that "The 2-, 3- and 4- isomers show quite potent activities in binding and uptake assays, with Ki values 0.079 – 0.780 μM in binding and 0.255 – 1.067 μM in inhibition of dopamine reuptake, respectively."[1]
