Hexedrone is a novel synthetic stimulant of the cathinone class. It has been speculated to act as a norepinephrine–dopamine–reuptake-inhibitor (NDRI). and a stimulant of the substituted cathinone class. Through analysis of the Structure-Activity Relationships in similar cathinones such as MDPV, Hexedrone is believed to be a norepinephrine–dopamine reuptake inhibitor.
Little is known about toxicity, addiction, and abuse potential of hexedrone. Due to its novelty and extremely short history of human usage, all information related to the use of this compound should be treated with caution.
Hexedrone is a cathinone, which is closely related to amphetamines, but have a ß-substituted ketone group as well. Relative to regular cathinone, which can be found in the Khat plant, hexedrone consists of two added substitutions. At the R2 position, a n-Butyl substitution forms a hexan chain. The second substitution is a Methyl group, that’s attached to the amine (R4), thus forming N-Methyl.
Due to the lack of research regarding the substance, all discussion regarding the pharmacology of it is purely based upon its structure and subjective effect similarities to other cathinones such as pentedrone and others. Hexedrone most likely acts as both a dopamine and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor. This allows dopamine and norepinephrine to build up within the brain, resulting in stimulating and euphoric effects.
The decreased potency, compared to both pentedrone as well as ethyl-hexedrone can be easily explained. Compared to pentedrone, there is a larger non-polar side chain. Ethyl-hexedrone has an ethyl group, instead of a methyl, which results in a significantly shifted electronegativity.
