    Abstract

    2,5-Dimethoxy-4-ethoxyamphetamine (MEM) was synthesized by two routes. The gas liquid chromatographic data and ultraviolet, infrared, proton magnetic resonance, carbon-13 magnetic resonance, and mass spectra are presented for this amphetamine as well as its precursors. This amphetamine was found to be identical to the sample submitted by the police.
