      AMT -> AET?  Bookmark   

I'm almost 100% sure that you can't but.. Is there any possibility of converting AMT(a-MethylTryptamine) to AET(a-EthylTryptamine?

I don't know of a direct substitute for LAH. But there is almost always an alternatice synthetic way. Think of the nitrostyrene reduction: Shulgin uses LAH all the time. but you can also do it with [NaBH4 + NiCl2] or electrolytically or first reduce the double bond with NaBH4, then the nitro group. Or you could go the phenylethanol --> phenylethyl-iodid --> PEA way... this is what I love about organic chemistry.

Yeh I just see DET. But it doesn't mean that it isn't illegal (I don't know Canadian laws that much).. They might have an analogue act?
