|Chemical structure of 3C-E|
3C-E is a psychedelic hallucinogenic drug and entheogen of the phenethylamine class of compounds. 3C-E was probably first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. In his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known and Loved), Shulgin lists the dosage range as 30 to 60 mg, consumed orally. The duration of action was stated to be 8-12 hours . 3C-E can be considered illegal in the U.S. as a result of the Analogue Act, although it is not itself scheduled; it is also illegal in Australia.
This compound is the three-carbon chain analogue of escaline.
