HEX-EN, Hexedrone, NEH also known as Ethyl-Hexedrone is a new research chemical created after the ban in China from 1.10.2015. This product has a triple research value than the well known Hexedrone. With similar characteristics and effects as Pentedrone, 4-CMC, 3-CMC. Another function of Ethyl-Hexedrone(Ethyl-Hex, NEH)is that it functions as a local anaesthetic with effectivnes similar to Pentedrone and a-PVP.
Ethyl-Hexedrone is a stimulant compound which is a derivative of cathinone group of chemicals and was developed early in 2011 and it is the result of a great deal of work elucidating the quantitative structure–activity relationship of the scaffold. The team looked for the key moieties which resulted in creating a compound which acts as NDRI(norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitor) with higher selectivity for dopamine transporter than norepinephrine transporter). It is also possible for this chemical to have low affinity to serotonin transorter, but for amounts needed to succesful research this effect can be skipped.
