2C-NBOMe is an analytical reference standard that is structurally categorized as a phenethylamine. It is a derivative of 2C-C having an N-(2-methoxybenzyl) addition at the amine.25c-NBOMe Erowid,25c-NBOMe vs 25i, synthesis, hyperreal
2C-C is a known hallucinogen that stimulates monoamine receptor activity and inhibits the re-uptake of serotonin and norepinephrine in rat brain synaptosomes (IC50 = 31 and 63 M, respectively).
The N-(2-methoxybenzyl) addition to 2C-NBOMe increases the affinity and selectivity for the 5-HT2A receptor over other serotonin receptors.
Radiolabeled it has been used for positron emission tomography imaging of the 5-HT2A receptor in the porcine brain.4 This product is intended for forensic and research uses.
In recent years, N-methoxybenzyl-methoxyphenylethylamine (NBOMe) derivatives, a class of designer hallucinogenic drugs, have become popular drugs of abuse.
These drugs have been the cause of severe intoxications and even deaths.
They act as 5-HT2A receptor agonists and have been reported to produce serotonin-like syndrome with bizarre behavior, severe agitation, and seizures persisting for as long as 3 days.
The most commonly reported derivatives are 25I-NBOMe, 25B-NBOMe and 25C-NBOMe, respectively 2-(4-iodo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-N-[(2-methoxyphenyl) methyl]ethanamine, N-(2-methoxybenzyl)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-bromophenethylamine and N-(2-methoxybenzyl)-2,5-dimethoxy-4-chlorophenethylamine.
Like many low-dose hallucinogenic drugs, these compounds are often sold on blotter paper.25c-NBOMe Erowid,25c-NBOMe vs 25i, synthesis, hyperreal
Three different types of commercially available blotter papers reported containing NBOMe derivatives were obtained.
These blotter papers were screened using Direct Analysis in Real-Time AccuTOFTM mass spectrometry followed by confirmation and quantification by high-performance liquid chromatography triple quadrupole mass spectrometry.
The major drug present on each of the three blotter products was different, 25I-NBOMe,25B-NBOMe.
The blotter papers were also found to have minute amounts of two or three NBOMe derivative impurities of 25H-NBOMe, 25I-NBOMe, 25B-NBOMe, or 25D-NBOMe.
