3,4 CTMP Information Review

3,4-CTMP is also known as 3,4-dichloro-transmethylphenidate or less frequently as methyl (2R)-2-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-[(2R)-piperidin-2-yl]acetate. 3,4 CTMP is a derivative of methylphenidate which itself is more commonly known as its brand name Ritalin which is used to treat ADD & ADHD.

3,4 CTMP Chemical Structure

It is around 7x more potent than methylphenidate – However 3,4 CTMP is known to have a larger onset than methylphenidate - and it is known to provide the user a similar feeling of stimulation as well as other effects such as: Increased heart rate, reduced appetite and insomnia. Effects such as weight-loss which typically happens with methylphenidate is due to its appetite reducing effects.

Methylphenidate has a protein binding rate of 30% and a half-life of 4 hours. Users of 3,4 CTMP have noted that they felt inclined to take more or simply that they found it ‘morish‘.

3,4 CTMP is not approved for any medical uses in the developed world and you will only find it for sale as ‘not for human use / consumption’ and in the 2nd quarter of 2013 is becoming more widely available from research chemical vendors including some of those on The trip report’s Trusted Vendor page.

3,4 CTMP Information

  • IUPAC: methyl (2R)-2-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-[(2R)-piperidin-2-yl]acetate
  • CAS Number: 1400742-68-8
  • Legality: Legal everywhere known, Although may come under analogue act in some countries.
  • Mass: 302.196 g/mol

Reports show that doses as small as 5mg have produced mild stimulation and lack of appetite and people have taken doses as large as 40mg over the course of 8 hours and reported no significant negative effects other than those previously mentioned.A typical dose seems to be 10mg (0.01 grams) taken orally.

Many research chemical vendors have begun stocking pre-dosed 10mg 3,4 CTMP pellets priced between £4 and £6 each. If you seek the powder to conduct tests or experiments you should expect to pay between £50 & £80 per gram depending on quality.

For those who want some in depth further reading on 3,4 CTMP and other methylphenidate analogues you can read a very detailed report here.
