Phenylacetone is an organic compound with the chemical formula C6H5CH2C(O)CH3. It is a colorless oil that is soluble in organic solvents. This substance is used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and amphetamine, where it is commonly known as P2P. Due to the illicit uses in clandestine chemistry, it was declared a schedule II controlled substance in the United States in 1980. In humans, phenylacetone occurs as a metabolite of amphetamine via oxidative deamination.
- MDP2P - related compound with a methylenedioxy group, and a precursor to MDMA.
- Cyclohexylacetone - the cyclohexane derivative of phenylacetone
