2C-N, or 2,5-Dimethoxy-4-nitrophenethylamine, is a
psychedelic phenethylamineof the 2C family. It was first synthesized by Alexander Shulginand is sometimes used as an entheogen.
The full name of the chemical is 2-(2,5-di
methoxy-4- nitro phenyl)ethanamine. Saltsof 2C-N have a bright yellow to orange color due to the presence of the nitro group, unlike all other members of the 2C family in which the salts are white.
In his book "PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved)", Shulgin lists the dosage range as 100-150 mg. 2C-N is generally taken orally, and effects typically last 4 to 6 hours. [CitePiHKAL]
2C-N is unscheduled and uncontrolled in the United States, but possession and sales of 2C-N may potentially be prosecuted under the
Federal Analog Actbecause of its structural similarities to 2C-T-7or 2C-B. The legality of 2C-N is under scrutiny as of July 2004, due to Operation Web Tryp.
2C-N and most (possibly all) other compounds featuring in PiHKAL are illegal drugs in the United Kingdom.
Psychedelics, dissociatives and deliriants
