1-(3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-butanone
« on: January 24, 2004, 09:41:00 PM »
I was a little confused by a friend talking about a substance he knew only as 1-(3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-butanone.  I sugested that it sound slike it could be MDBD, but it didn't exactly match up, can any of you help m,e identify this substance?

1-(3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-butanone is the precursor ketone to MBDB, so you would get MBDB by reductively aminating this ketone with methylamine, as Shulgin does in his synthesis of

Methyl-J

(http://www.erowid.org/library/books_online/pihkal/pihkal128.shtml). Methyl-J is an alternative name for MBDB.

It's to MBDB what 1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-propanone (the well known MDP2P) is to MDMA.

Here are the structures:













Molecule:

MDP2P; 3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl-2-propanone (" CC(=O)Cc2ccc1OCOc1c2 ")














Molecule:

3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl-2-butanone (" CCC(=O)Cc2ccc1OCOc1c2 ")

4-(3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl)-2-butanone = 3,4-Methylenedioxyphenyl-3-butanone













Molecule:

3,4-MDP-3-Butanone ("CC(=O)CCc2ccc1OCOc1c2")



But it has no significance.
