  • U-47700 (3,4-dichloro-N-[2-(dimethylamino)cyclohexyl]N-methylbenzamide) is a novel compound with opioid properties, developed by Upjohn in the 1970s and derived from the earlier opioid analgesic AH-7921 (3,4-dichloro-N{[1-(dimethylamino)-cyclohexyl]methyl}benzamide) [1]. U-47700 is a structural isomer of AH-7921 [2]. AH-7921, which possesses the same potency as morphine, was first identified in 2012 in a seizure purchased over the internet and recently entered the recreational and illicit drug… CONTINUE READING
