I dreamed an interesting question, last night:
Assuming that one had access to pharmaceutical quality methylphenidate, does anyone know of interesting possible changes that might enhance its potency?

I remember reading about a "reversed ester" versions of the drug, and--while *THAT* might not be possible from methylphenidate, itself--are there any other possibilities?

Thanks, in advance!

Where did you read of reversed ester methylphenidate analogs? Are you sure that you are not thinking of reversed ester demerol (meperidine) analogs? I don't think that Ritalin can be manipulated in any fun ways.

Well, yes--to both. They follow the same logic for both methylphenidate and meperidine (demerol). I read about them in Shulgin's DRUGS OF ABUSE IN THE FUTURE and the DEA chemist's FUTURE SYNTHETIC DRUGS OF ABUSE (available in Rhodium's page). The Ritalin version vas Levo-Phacetoperane. I think the Demerol analog was MPPP.
