3-MMC Crystalline Powder and Rocks
3-MMC Crystalline Powder and Rocks or 3-Methylmethcathinone is from the substituted cathinone family. 3-MMC is closely related in structure to the more common mephedrone.
3-Methylmethcathinone also known as 3-MMC or metaphedrone is a novel stimulant-entactogen substance of the cathinone class. It is a structural analog of mephedrone (4-MMC). It is thought to produce its effects by promoting the release of dopamine and serotonin, although studies are lacking.
Limited data exists about the pharmacological properties, metabolism, and toxicity of 3-MMC, and it has little history of human use. Learn More

3-MMC, or 3-Methylmethcathinone, is a molecule of the substituted cathinone class. Cathinones are a sub-category of amphetamines, sharing the core amphetamine structure of a phenyl ring bound to an amino (NH2) group through an ethyl chain and an additional methyl substitution at Rα.
3-MMC and other cathinones are differentiated by their ketone substitution on the beta carbon of the amphetamine skeleton, meaning they are β-keto-amphetamines. 3-MMC has two methyl substitutions on its cathinone skeleton, one at R3 of the phenyl ring, and a second at the nitrogen group RN. 3-MMC is analogous to mephedrone; it is identical in structure except for the placement of the methyl group at R4 instead of R3
3-MMC contains a chiral centre at the C-2 carbon of the propane side-chain, so that two enantiomers exist: R-3-MMC and S-3-MMC. Due to the similarity with cathinone the S form is thought to be more potent than the R form.
The hydrochloride salt of 3-MMC is a white crystalline powder. It has a melting point of 193.2 ± 0.2°C (hydrochloride salt) and a boiling point of 280.5 ± 23.0°C at 760 mm Hg. It is sparingly soluble in PBS; slightly soluble in ethanol, dimethyl sulfoxide, and dimethyl formamide. Learn More
3-MMC Crystalline Powder / Rocks Pharmacology
Due to the lack of research regarding the substance, all discussion regarding the pharmacology of it is purely speculation based upon its structure and subjective effect similarities to other stimulants such as mephedrone, amphetamine and 2-FMA. 3-MMC most likely acts as both a dopamine and norepinephrine releasing agent. This means it may effectively boost the levels of the norepinephrine and dopamine neurotransmitters in the brain by binding to and partially blocking the transporter proteins that normally remove those monoamines from the synaptic cleft. This allows dopamine and norepinephrine to accumulate within the brain, resulting in stimulating and euphoric effects Learn More
