4-EMC delivers both stimulant and entactogen effects, which makes it a popular choice amongst chemical researchers. 4-EMC is officially known as 4-ethylmethcathinone, and it’s been available only for a short while. The compound represents an isomer of 4-MEC, another recently discovered research agent from the substituted cathinones class, as well as to now restricted 4-MMC (mephedrone). Pharmacological profile of this substance is likely to be based on interaction with monoamine transmitters, similar to its relatives from the same chemical group.
Full IUPAC name of 4-EMC is 1-(4-ethylphenyl)-2-(methylamino)propan-1-one, with a simple chemical formula that can be summarized as C12H17NO
