Amphetamine Syntheses

Overview & reference guide for Professionals

by Otto Snow

Otto has put together the most explicit syntheses on the bulk production
of psychedelic amphetamines, precursors and reductions. MDA, MDMA (XTC),
DOB, TMA, PMA, MDEA (Eve), DOM (STP) & other popular stimulants, eg.
methylcathinone, phenetermine, aminorex, ephedrine. It is easy reading
yet, explicit, hardcore, psychedelic amphetamine chemistry. eg.
Methylcathinone and other psycho-stimulants from non-list chemicals.
Production of precursors from fertilizer, spices, barks, seeds and oils.
Expanded metal & electrolytic reductions. Bulk production of reduction &
list chemicals from solvents & common chemicals at the local hardware
store. Hundreds of reactions are described, current drug laws and list
chemicals.
