Synthesis[edit]

The article says: "Ganesha can be synthesized from 3,4-methyl-2,5-dimethoxy-phenethylamine", though I can't find any references for this at the moment, though PIHKAL mentions a synth from 2,5-dimethoxy-3,4-dimethylbenzaldehyde. --Mark PEA 11:01, 18 February 2007 (UTC)


Yeah adding an alpha-methyl group onto 2CG would be pretty challenging from a synthetic standpoint, it would require multiple steps and would be an impractical way of making Ganesha. I might just delete this line although feel free to reinstate it if you can find a reference! Also i changed the article slightly to state that oral administration is the most common route, as most research chemicals are consumed orally, so i doubt rectal administration is the route of choice for most users of this drug.

Without a source to justify its relevance, I wonder if rectal administration of this drug is really worthy of mention in the article at all.--Eloil 01:14, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

The chemical formula does not match and the IUPAC name is incorrect--ChemSpiderMan (talk) 13:46, 17 December 2007 (UTC)

The pictures for 3C-G4 and 5 are identical.71.213.52.229 (talk) 04:44, 15 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't think 3C-G is a correct name[edit]

I don't think 3C-G is a correct name for this drug. 3Cs are not analogs of 2Cs. Here is a quote from PIHKAL about this, under the entry for B:

A brief reiteration of the 2C-3C nomenclature, to avoid a possible misunderstanding. The drug 2C-B is so named in that it is the two-carbon chain analogue of the three-carbon chain compound DOB. The drug 3C-B is so named because it is the three-carbon chain analogue of the two-carbon chain compound Buscaline, or more simply, B. There is no logical connection whatsoever, either structural or pharmacological, between 2C-B and 3C-B.

I'll remove references to 3C-G if no one has any objections. --Utility Monster (talk) 15:52, 7 August 2009 (UTC)
