“Research Chemicals Are Used By Scientists to Identify Properties and Test Hypotheses”

A substance which has no confrontation with human use in history is labeled as a ‘research substance’. Whether how much time these substances require in timeline of human history to be exempted from this classification as research substance is still under review. These substances should better be called as ‘experimental’ or ‘un-researched’ chemicals. Not all of these research chemicals are newly born rather some have been in nature for long till they had their first human encounter.

These come off as purified forms derived from diverse molecules and compounds. These substances are utilized by scientists to discover various characteristics and are experimented upon to nullify or accept certain hypotheses. Although many of these chemicals have their source of origin from animals apart from plants but these are not meant to be maneuvered on them. Despite the name research chemicals, application of these substances is not confined to mere laboratories rather it has reached the grey zones of practice as street drugs as well as a variety of fields.

Owing to this diversity, the substance has sought, the term research substance can be attributed to many different implications and meanings when viewed through distinct contexts.

Agriculture is one of the diversity research chemicals have sought as they are available in the agricultural market as fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, nematicides and insecticides. These research compounds can either belong to organic category or inorganic substances including manures, hormones, fertilizers and growth agents.

Second diversity research chemicals are fond of is pharmacology where they evaluate potency and usage of several medications and helps classifying them in terms of their toxicity. Almost homologous substances can be manufactured with slight substitutions in the core structure of research chemicals in order to avert from drug control laws. These synthesized substances are called as ‘designer drugs’.

Several medicinal therapeutics can be benefited from research chemicals which have led to drug modification and even new drug discovery.

Owing to myriad number of research chemicals, there is huge spectrum of chemical traits they harbor. These properties encompass dosages, affinities, adverse effects, potencies, etc. Not all of ‘research chemicals’ can be defined in this context therefore two are described below.

Psychoactive family chemicals which have both illicit as well as legal registration in the drug market are commercialized as ‘research chemicals’. These psychoactives are tryptamines and phenylethylamines which harbor amine group together with a phenyl ring in their structure. Amine and phenyl within phenlethylamine are kept together by a carbine while tryptamine features an indole ring in its configuration which has homology to tryptophan, an essential amino acid.

IUPAC labels phenylethylamine as 2-phenylethan-1-amine with a molar mass of 121.8g/mol. It is chemically known as a colorless substance with liquid form with a chemical formula as C8H11N. It has favorable solvents as ethanol, water and ether.

IUPAC designates tryptophan as 2-(1H-Indol-3-yl) ethanamine with a molecular mass of 160.22 g/mol. Empirically it has a formula as C10H12N2 and is orange or white crystal like powder at room temperature which is sparingly soluble in water.

Companies label their manufactures as ‘research drugs’ to boost their standards.
