Will this actually work?


Phenylethylamine (PEA) to Amphetamine :) PURE

  1. Add an OH group. Dissolve your PEA in warm ethanol (alcohol). Grain would work, i use hand sanitizer (after salted out of course). No boil off that ethanol on about 180F. Can go up to almost 300F if you want to speed it up.

2. Scrape the remaining white powder off the pan. Place in a mix of white vinegar and warm ethanol. Let it dissolve. Now boil this shit off on same temp. Now you have a Ketone aka ====O. Next you're going to methylate this and have Amphetamine.

3. Scrape this powder off pan, place in a VERY small mixture of methanol and acetone (1mL per gram). Shake it. It should react ithin 2 minutes. Now filter this and let it dry. You just fucking made pure Amphetamine. Go give some to your friends. Take some too. Keep a big stash. Sell a bit even.

Did you come up with that yourself or did somebody try to fool you into buying PEA?

Starting from phenylethylamine, I'll outline what happens to the molecule:
  1. Dissolved PEA in ethanol. it's a solvent. heating it up to 80C won't work as ethanol boils at 75C. so you dissolved it then dried it. No reaction
  2. Dissolved PEA in vinegar and ethanol, no catalyst. due to the high concentration of water, the equilibrium is forced in the backwards. no reaction. Without water, you will probably make ethyl acetate as those are the primary nucleophilic actors in the reaction. PEA is no where near as reactive.
  3. Methanol and acetone is just a solvent system. Without a catalyst or extreme reaction conditions, it will just dissolve in the solution and that's it.

Let it dry. And congratulations! You've made phenylethylamine. Go inject some directly into your temporal lobes. Inject it into your friends' temporal lobes. Flush it down the toilet. Burn your local police station down.

Well you actually would end up with phenethylamine acetate.
Im no neurobiologicianist but im afraid itd still be fucking useless

You know if itd be this easy to make amphetamine thered be another name for it

Pure ethanol and acetic acid might make N-acetyl-phenylethylamine. Very shitty yields but OP did say to use white vinegar instead so what the fuck.

Id guess youd need an acidic hydroxy function like a phenol and a strong drying agent like sicapent.
But n-acetylation with ethanoic acid? Theyd just act as acid and base. O-acetylation is way easier

Uh wat. Amines are more reactive than alcohols in terms of acetylation, tosylation, t-boc-ification and whatever

nb. maybe i missed the point

Well not if you just put an amine and acetic acid in a pot and then spend an hour standing next to it.
Theyd just undergo an acid base reaction unless you were to add an activation agent like ddq or had a better leaving group.

>Now you have a Ketone aka ====O
thanks OP this really breaks it down for ya

just put in my order for 5kg of PEA

I would take your PEA, throw in a base and some methyl chloride and pray to god things work.

PEA has strong base properties so the OH as a solvent to completely disolve the PEA would very possibly yield an acetylated PEA and if i am not mistaken asprin also works to acetylate compounds(DEA Microgram) and and im pretty sure a methyl group can replace an acetyl group the acetone methonol keeps the PEA(post acetylation) from becomming solute.... i think this simple reacton would make alpha-methy; phenylethylamine acetate, maybe react with a tiny bit of muritac to yeild the HCL
