    Abstract

    N-[1-hydroxy-2-(3-indolyl)ethyl] pyrrolidine was detected as an impurity in N-[2-(3-indolyl)ethyl] pyrrolidine (tetramethylene tryptamine). 1-(N,N-diethlyamino)-2-(3-indo-lyl)ethan-1-ol together with 2-(3-indolyl)ethan-1-ol were detected as impurities 1-(N,N-diethyl-amino)-2-(3-indolyl)-ethane (N,N-diethyl tryptamine). These impurities indicate that the synthetic route was that of Misztal and such information is important.
