2c-e in liquid
from the DEA's Microgram SOLUTIONS OF 4-ETHYL-2,5-DIMETHOXYPHENETHYLAMINE (2C-E)&#8232;IN DROPPER BOTTLES IN KENTUCKY The Kentucky State Police Western Laboratory Branch (Madisonville) recently received two plastic dropper bottles, each containing approximately 8 milliliters of clear liquid, suspected 4-bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine (2C-B; see Photo 2). The exhibit was acquired by the Kentucky State Police (location and details sensitive). The base solvent was not identified. Evaporation of a 1 milliliter aliquot to dryness produced white crystals. Analysis of a methanolic extract by GC/MS, GC/FID and FTIR/ATR, however, indicated not 2C-B but rather 4-ethyl-2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamine (2C-E, not formally quantitated but a moderate loading based on the TIC). This was the first submission of 2C-E to the laboratory.
