PDF (N-Cyclohexyl Butylone)

N-Cyclohexyl butylone is classified as a novel stimulant and substituted cathinone. Substituted cathinones are modified based on the structure of cathinone, an alkaloid found in the Khat plant. Novel stimulants have been reported to cause psychoactive effects similar to amphetamines. Novel stimulants have also caused adverse events, including deaths, as described in the literature. Structurally similar drugs include N-cyclohexyl methylone (reported by NPS Discovery in May 2022) and butylone, among other beta-keto methylenedioxyamphetamine (or “-ylones”). Butylone is a Schedule I substance in the United States; N-cyclohexyl butylone and N-cyclohexyl methylone are not explicitly scheduled.
