So, theoretically speaking, how hard would it be to synthesize MXE at home assuming one had no real chemistry experience or knowledge?

I'm curious because this stuff has gone the way of quaaludes and nobody is making it anymore, and after reading /dis/ for a while I've been wondering for the past few days what would making a batch imply in terms of proficiency, equipment and reagents.

you really think you can just synthesize a drug with no knowledge or experience? shit while you're at it why not write a symphony or build a house?

i'm not actually going to try to synthesize shit, i can barely afford buying weed at the moment, buying any sort of supplies is out of the question. That, and i don't want to get bumfucked in jail.

i'm simply curious as to what the process involves in general, and thought i'd ask here. That's all.

The synthesis of methoxetamine is achieved by 4 steps through simple
reactions involving an aromatic nitrile, a Grignard reagent, bromination, imine
formation through reaction with a suitable amine, followed by the application
of heat to the product to allow ring expansion of 1-[(ethylimino)(3-methoxyphenyl)methyl]-1-cyclopentanol. This process is presumably readily applicable to analogues of methoxetamine by substitution of starting aromatic nitrile and selected amine to afford the desired N-substituted derivative analogues of methoxetamine.

So you'd need 3-methoxybenzonitrile, cyclopentyl bromide and make a grignard from it, form the intermediate ketone, brominate it and add ethylamine to get the imine and heat? for the ring expansion, would the imine get protonated, and the five membered ring turn to a six membered ring to push the double bond electrons into the nitrogen?

And uh. How many of those put you on a watch list?

i'm not actually wanting to do it. Am not OP and just trying to figure out how to read chemistry stuff without being retarded.

I made this scematic, is anything like this possible to be right?

Lmao what.
Looks like this is based on a misunderstanding of the nitroaldol condensation, but it's pretty fucking hard to tell.
