2-phenylethylamine 95% CAS NO 64-04-0
Phenethylamine (PEA), or beta-phenylethylamine, 2-phenylethylamine, is an alkaloid and monoamine neurotransmitter. Phenylethylamine has a structural isomer, alpha-phenylethylamine or 1-phenylethylamine, alpha-phenylethylamine has two stereoisomers: (R) - (+) - 1-phenylethylamine and (S) - (-) - 1-phenylethylamine. In the human brain, 2-phenylethylamine acts as a neuromodulator, neurotransmitter and tracer amine. Phenylethylamine is a natural compound, which is synthesized by enzymatic decarboxylation of amino acid phenylalanine. It can also be found in many foods, such as chocolate, especially after microbial fermentation. It is generally believed that the sufficient dosage of ethylamine from food will have a mental effect. However, it is quickly metabolized by the enzyme Monoamine Oxide, preventing its effective concentration to the brain. Substituted phenylethylamine is a class of compounds with a wide range of functions and diverse structures, including neurotransmitters, hormones, stimulants, hallucinogens, restorative drugs (Entactogen), anorexics, bronchodilators and antidepressants.
