GR8 Reasearch Chemicals is pleased to announce that we now stock 4-AcO-DET.

You might have seen this chemical, parading under the comon names of 4-AcO-DET, 4-Acetoxy-DET or Ethacetin. It’s full substitutive name is 4-Acetoxy-N,N-diethyltryptamine, but that’s quite a mouthful! So we’ll stick to 4-AcO-DET.

4-AcO-DET is a member of the tryptamine class. It is a synthetic chemical, with psychedelic tendencies, producing an altered state of consciousness, marked by uncommon changes in your levels of perception, your mood, and your cognitive processing power. Tryptamines all have a common core structure comprising a bicylic indole heterocycle, which is attached at R3 to an amino group by way of an ethyl side chain. 4-AcO-DET is substituted at R4 of its indole heterocycle, with an acetoxy (AcO) functional group CH3COO−. It also features isopropyl and methyl chains, bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine core (DET).

4-AcO-DET is the acetylated form of 4-HO-DET (also known as ethocin) and is a higher homolog of 4-AcO-DMT and 4-AcO-MET. It has a systematic name of 3-(2-(Diethylamino)ethyl)-1H-indol-4-yl acetate.
