    Can any of the other SWIMmers here at the rec center pool tell SWIM how 4-HO-MIPT reacts with marquis?

    Alright, if one wants something done......

    SWIM told me one would see a slowly developing brownish-olive green. And being the suggestible sort, that's exactly what one saw.

    Pretty much all tryptamines turn olive or some other vague color with Marquis. It's not a very useful test for them. As to which regeants might be useful - not sure...ask a chemist! Erlich's reagent is what is used in the field to identify LSD.
