The drugs 2-, 3-, and 4-methoxy-N-methylamphetamine, 3-methoxy-4,5-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine, and 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine are identified by spectroscopic techniques. The ultraviolet and mass spectra of isomers are similar, but proton magnetic resonance and infrared spectra are distinctly different, and reference spectra and data are provided. Gas-liquid and thin layer chromatographic systems for the analysis are discussed.
