Synthesis and organic impurity profiling of 4-methoxymethamphetamine hydrochloride and its precursors.

Abstract

4-Methoxymethamphetamine (PMMA) was synthesised from star anise and from 4-methoxytoluene and the organic impurity profiles examined. These two starting materials are unrestricted chemicals in many jurisdictions and contain the requisite functional groups and are thus well suited for clandestine manufacturers. trans-Anethole was extracted from star anise… (More)
