Aromatic hydroxylation has been established as a pathway for the in vivo metabolism of 3,4-(methylenedioxy)methamphetamine (MDMA) in the rat. Hydroxylation occurred at positions 2, 5 and 6 of the 3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl ring, but is favored at the 6 position. All three regioisomers of both hydroxy-MDMA and hydroxy-3,4-(methylenedioxy)amphetamine (hydroxy-MDA) were detected in the rat liver when 20 mg kg-1 of MDMA was administered. However, 6-hydroxy-MDMA and 6-hydroxy-MDA were the only… CONTINUE READING
