I haven't seen much info, nor being able to google it, on a nitroaldol henry type reaction between benzaldehyde and 2-nitroethylbenzene, yielding 1,3 diarylnitropropene. This product could be converted to a 1,3 diaryl-2-propylamine or converted to a ketone and then with a reductive animation converted to a 1,3,diaryl,n-methyl-2 propylamine. Sorry if my nomenaclature is bad, but I am surprised that their is little found, well at least for me. I stumbled upon some of these reactions in a thesis, but only to the point of the 1,3 diarylnitropropene. If anything, I wouldn't be surprised if such molecules were inhibitive of the enzymes, related to the pathway associated with the use of amphetamine type structures, but thats a guess and may be wrong. I did notice in Java's article of interest thread, http://127.0.0.1/talk/index.php/topic,568.msg7202.html#msg7202
that diaryl molecules were mentioned, and seeing this triggered my thoughts on what I have presented. I dare say experimental is king. I just wanted to mention it I suppose. My question is, has anyone heard or seen such a molecule being discussed or prepared etc. I haven’t checked other forums, etc.
