Default MDMA for dummies

I've been reading about various MD(M)A synthesis around the web and I think that making md is fairly easy, with proper glassware. The only pain in the ass is getting the fucking safrole, which is the most controlled substance in the world. By the way, nutmeg contains safrole, and it's pretty cheap. I looked for an extraction, but I just found an hypothetical procedure, which involves an acetone extraction, a distillation and a vacuum remotion of the solvent.And it would yield both safrole and myristicin. However, could this extraction work? here nutmeg is really cheap(once i found it at 2/100g)and even if it contains about 0,1% of safrole, it would be the best way to get it.

Another strange fact is the lack of documentation about the chlorosafrole method, which is similar in the bromosafrole one. many people report successful synthesis using 37% hcl and glacial acetic acid(both unwatched and cheap) for the chlorination of safrole. And those claim they were able to get mdma with the "bomb". Is it just BS or this synthesis is poorly used because of it's low yields?

I believe, if you look hard enough, safrole can be sourced online.

very well may be available over the webs, but that leaves a paper trail. now it's 1984, i say one of the craziest things you could do would be get safrole off-line.

This is why you have a friend who knows a guy who has a strong interest in aromatherapy or commercial insecticide, and who orders it for you. In all seriousness, I quite agree, sourcing your desired precursor can, in my opinion, be achieved far better by cunningly choosing your next holiday destination and buying in person. That is, assuming you don't require 400 litres of the stuff.

Chlorosafrole is impractical becaus of the reaction rates at vaeious stes... Proceeds too slowly, and if tried to accelerate, has a tendency to fuck verything up righteously.

Alternatively, if you live anywhere in the American northwest, Sasafras grows in acres all over the place. Set up a good steam set up, and you could pump the junk out by the gallon. And I wholeheartedly approve of this thread.

Safrole aside, there was a good thread back at &T (and now there's one at WD) about pepper-->MDMA (via piperonal and EtNO2). I think it was made easier when someone determined you could buy the piperonal precursor (piperine) online by the kilo (and IIRC, it's unwatched (wiki) Gotta love the picture they got there.

Unless you distill it yourself or happen upon some really nice people, safrole is a thing of the past.

piperine + NaOH in MeOH -> piperic acid

piperic acid + KMnO4 -> piperonal

piperonal + nitroethane + NaOH + HCl in MeOH -> MDP2NP

MDP2NP + Fe + HCl -> MDP2P


If you can get your paws on some nitro this shit is like making biscuits.

...but, for those who like/can handle babysitting... it is win...

There are other routes. Including some which are ludicrously self-assembling...

Both can be found as RC/Racing fuel. Nitroethane's a bit harder to find, but still definitely findable. It can be made with some ethylamine + KmNO4 but ethylamine's not the easiest stuff to find/make either.

If only we all had vapor phase nitration capabilities...

So, if I get vanillin, and then I convert it into piperonal, MDP2P is almost done? I read you can easily turn vanillin into piperonal just by dissolving it into NP solvent and then adding Aluminium chloride; is it true?

Rhodium does...


Um... alternately

nitroethane + calcium hydroxide + formaldehyde -> 2-nitropropanol
2-nitropropanol + acetic anhydride -> 2-nitropropyl acetate
2-nitropropyl acetate + sodium carbonate -> 2-nitropropene (1)

then either:

paraformaldehyde + 1,3-benzodioxole + HCl -> chloromethyl mixture
sodium ethoxide + 2-nitropropane + mix -> piperonal (2)

or

1,3-benzodioxole + 2-nitropropene + TiCl4 -> MDP2P (3)

Naw, too complicated. Do we haaaave yo go through MDP2P? There's gotta be another way.

Oddly enough, I heard some bizzare rumor about someone once using aluminum chloride as a demethylating agent for no discernable reason; I can't remember if it was rumored to actually work, though.

I doubt you're going to get dehydrogenative demethylation resulting in immediate methylenation, though. Might wanna stick to the DCM...

formic methylenedioxymethamphetamide + LAH comes to mind as a possibility.

There's also a chance that acetylMDA would be less-uncontrolably molested by methyl chloride than MDA/MDMA/n,n-dimethylMDA/etc. Might avoid the trimethylammonium species, might not. If you've just made a pound of MDA on the cheap, why not work up a nano and find out? After all, if it's comin' out your ears...

The nitro group tends to reduce quite readily... though iron is less-preferred as a reducing agent to get to the amine in the particular case, of course...

This is a good thread! Let's keep it going.

Haven't had the chance to try it out quite yet but I'm always keen on microwave reactions, and as far as MAOS goes the demethyation of eugenol with pyrdine HCl looks pretty excellent. Ar least as far as ease and OTCness goes. (1)

Follow with a methylenation of your 4-ally from tha microwavez with NaOH and DCM in DMSO and you'd have some safrole work with. Clove oil is cheap enough that depending on the yields from the first step this could be pretty efficient.

The only think you couldn't make or find in a hardware store would be the DMSO, but then that's hardly a list 1 chemical.

I thought the primary product of a haloalkane
n-alkylation was the tertiary amine, with only a small bit of
quaternary salt? Would this (yields + species) be dependent on halide
and stoichiometry, or rather something more insidious? Also, is there
any particularly good way to separate/decomp the quat. amine?

And some stuff on EtNO2: EtOH + 98%H2SO4 (our favorite drain opener) +
NH4NO3 (easiest acquirable nitrate) <--> EtNO2 (?) which may be
stilled off, or some such. IDK. I'm just throwin' 'em out there. I'm
thinking back to my other organic nitrate days on this one.

Ooh, and where does one get methylvanillin? I looked online, but couldn't find any.

I think vanillin comes monomethylated. If you're looking to make dimethoxyphenethylamines, I'd imagine a little methyl halide with vanillin would get you there...

BZP might be a cakewalk to make, but its presence in street 'ecstasy' tablets has never been tolerated by the enlightened community - There are those who enjoy it, and there are also those who don't care whats in the pill as long as it gets them off, but anyone who's had a decent pill before would brick you for pumping out BZP/mCPP mixtures as MDMA. If you're going to sell designers and analogues, sell them for what they are, and make sure your distributer does the same.

Couple o' quickies: How does one purify the de-carboxylated niacin? Would gassing with anh HCl from xylene/mek work? Where does one get DCM? I've seen it as an ingredient in solvents of some kind (follow up research showed could be still'd out), but is there an easier way? Moreover, does one steam their own eugenol, or is it "safe" enough to purchase on teh net? If one does steam their own eugenol, what are the yields like from cloves (g/kg leaves)? Oh, and after steaming, what kind of cleaning would be necessary on the rec'd oils?

I'd assume so though I'll have to get back to you on this. State would know better than I.

It's definitely pretty available as a paint stripper or fiberglass solvent. I've seen it at metal working and photographic supply stores occasionally too. Alternatively, it's a pretty common chemical, I doubt buying it online would draw too much heat.

Yeah, at least around here ordering clove oil by the liter is very chill. It has a fuckton of legitimate uses so I can't see them trying to regulate it in any way, at least not anytime soon.

I'm not sure about the exact yields, but I've heard they're usually pretty sufficient.

"50 g of whole cloves (from a supermarket - you can buy cloves in Kg quantities from Indian grocery stores) placed in a 500 ml rb. 3-necked flask with 250 ml of water and several boiling sticks. Steam dist. for 50 to 75 min., with water volume kept constant at 250 ml. Distillate transferred to a separating funnel, extd. with 2 x 50 ml CH2Cl2. Combined CH2Cl2 portion then extd. with 3 x 50 ml 5% KOH soln. (heat is evolved). Combined KOH portion washed with 25 ml CH2Cl2. Aq. layer transferred to a 600 ml beaker and slowly acidified with 5% HCl to a pH = 1 (tested using indicator paper). Aq. layer extd. with 2 x 40 ml CH2Cl2, combined CH2Cl2 portions washed with 25 ml of water followed by 25 ml of half saturated NaCl soln. The CH2Cl2 portion dried over anhydrous granular NaSO4, decanted, CH2Cl2 removed on a steam bath. Pure, 98% Eugenol is obtained as a pale yellow oil. [Scale-up as you see fit]." (1)

DOES anybody have some tips on an easy OTC synthesis of ethylamine? Is ethanol + ammonia feasible on a non-industrial scale? What about ethyl chloride and ammonia? Sure you'd end up with a mixed product but diethylamines not the worst thing to have around...

thinking back to my other organic nitrate days on this one.
Not sure how I missed this buuut could you expand on it a bit?

Ah.. It seems I may have been mistaken about the formed products of such a reaction...maybe...

In the time of a pyro, one finally learns enough chem to deal with organic nitrates, (nitroglycerine, HMX, RDX, etc) the good ones. And the quintessential element of each synthesis was the creation of nitric acid from 98% H2SO4 and some inorganic nitrate salt. Simple as mixing the two together, very well cooled and if you're heart-set of purity, the HNO3 get stilled off later and dessicated and all that, but for the stuff that's "just for kicks," 's not really an issue.

So, the drill with these organic nitrates is basically organic alcohol + conc H2SO4 + conc HNO3 --> Organic nitrate + H2O + other acid crap. When I was reading up on organic chem, it appears to be the replacement of an alcohol by a strong acid anion. A common phenomenon, I guess.

So my doubt here, lies in two places: 1) rather than pumping out nitroethane, it will pump ethyl nitrate (EtNO2 vs EtNO3). 2) That any nitroethane produced will be unrecoverable. With issue 1, I think the product between these two will be determined by the conc of the acids and maybe the H2O present in soln, such that it could be tweaked to pump out goods. With 2, my reasoning here is that the junk has such a high BP, stilling it off could be difficult/dangerous/areallybadidea. Oo, alternatively, according to wiki, it is ~insoluble in water, so maybe a NP sitting in the mix to pull in the EtNO2 as it's produced would do it. Heck, picking something with a low BP which could then be stilled of later, leaving only ~pure EtNO2 behind would be neat.

Well, off the top of my head, what about ethanal + NH3 <--> ethylimine, then tweek the equilibrium (dessicate?) Then extract and add the imine to H2O and Zn powder to the mix, 'cause supposedly it reduces imines to amines (Tetrahedron Letters 39 (1998) 8873-8876) sorry I don't know how to link it. As for how to get teh ethanal, thought I remember something along the lines of JP's Patented Aldehyde Space Factory. Simple as ethanol and bleach and maybe some kind of catalyst (Ni(II)?). Post something about the aldehyde maker in th BS thread. I don't know enough to tell you how to set one up, but someone there does.

The NP would have to be chosen very carefully, I for one wouldn't want to be trying to nitrate ethanol on top of a layer of toluene and jsut hoping the ethanol has a higher reactivity then the tolly; lest we wind up with a thick oily boundary of MNT in the mix... yikes.

Is nitroethane watched in the USA? I found it at 20/l in the net...

Anyone here recall the conclusion that was reach awhile back regarding safrole --> mdma via HBr and some other stuff? I recall something 'bout shit yields, but based on simplicity, who knows. Also, I've been reading up a bit and it seems the only (other) way from safrole --> ketone is PdCl2 or peroxyacid junk. Is there another way?

If you're going to sell designers and analogues, sell them for what they are, and make sure your distributer does the same.
This.

I seem to recall epoxidation followed by isomerization w/ H2SO4. I think SM has a few things to say on this matter.

Save your sassy!!!!! That shit is precious, dont want to throw it away in some shitty low yeild synth like that. If SWIM were to have any, he would try out a pseudonitrosite for MDA or a performic to keto and Al/Hg w/ MeNO2 for MDMA
