    Abstract

    An unusual police exhibit having the physical appearance, color, and odor of methamphetamine hydrochloride was identified unequivocally on the basis of combined evidence from 1H- and 13C-NMR, mass, and infrared spectroscopic examination as N-(2-hydroxyethyl)amphetamine hydrochloride (HEA·HCl). A minor contaminant of the exhibit was similarly identified as ethanolamine hydrochloride (HE·HCl), suggesting synthesis via reductive amination of phenylacetone. Relevant spectroscopic data (1H-, 13C-NMR, mass, and FT-IR) and spectra are presented.
