    Abstract

    Synthetic methods and spectroscopic and chromatographic data are provided for four 2,3-methylenedioxyamphetamines (2,3-MDA, N-methyl-2,3-MDA, N-ethyl-2,3-MDA and N,N-dimethyl-2,3-MDA). These compounds are aromatic positional isomers of the corresponding 3,4-methylenedioxyamphetamines, which are well known, widely abused central nervous system stimulants with euphoric properties. Direct spectroscopic and chromatographic comparisons of the two isomeric series indicate that the 2,3-MDA's may be easily and unambiguously differentiated from the corresponding 3,4-MDA's via standard analytical methodologies.
