Isopropylbenzylamine CAS # 102-97-6

Isopropylbenzylamine is a chemical compound used as a precursor to the manufacture of certain drugs in the pharmaceutical industry as an intermediate. Due to its use by illicit methamphetamine producers as a diluting agent, which is very close in appearance and physical properties to methamphetamine and is inexpensive and not currently illegal, it has recently come to the attention of the DEA. Isopropylbenzylamine is a methamphetamine structural isomer and has the same molar mass. Like methamphetamine, it is also a secondary amine and forms salts in the same manner. As a result, it appears very similar to methamphetamine and has a similar melting point and can be used to dilute methamphetamine without being apparent to users, although some minor variations can be apparent, such as a slightly higher melting point and softer crystals. There are no estimated stimulant effects of isopropylbenzylamine
