      Replace Cl with Br on Ketamine phenyl group?  Bookmark   

I tried a search but nothing came up.  Seemed kind of like an obvious thing to try in order to see if any interesting effects / differences could be found.  Anyone ever heard of this being done, to make 2-(2-Bromophenyl)-2-(methylamino)- cyclohexanone?

I suppose any halogen could be used.

      You cannot easily modify ketamine like that.  Bookmark   

You cannot easily modify ketamine like that. You must synthesize the bromo-molecule from scratch.

      I wasn't interested in synthesis routes  Bookmark   

Yeah, I realized that you probably couldn't de-chlorinate it and add a bromide ion on there selectively, jeez.  I was just wondering if such a compound had been made and if it had been observed to have different effects.
