Appearance Of Pentylone
The hydrochloride salt of pentylone has been described as an off-white powder and a neat solid.
In its pure form, it is expected to be odorless and white.
Pharmacology Of Pentylone
The number of systematic studies available at this time is limited but it seems clear that it is a psychomotor stimulant.
In vitro, it has been demonstrated to block the reuptake of dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin.
This was done using rat brain synaptosomal preparations with preference for the dopamine system.
Thus, its behaving cocaine- and MDPV-like rather than amphetamine-like.
Animal studies confirmed that it increases locomotor activity and that it substituted for methamphetamine and cocaine in drug discrimination studies.
