1. Please take the time to choose a meaningful subject

2. See the last step in: Post 405291 (pHarmacist: "Synth. of 5-halo-tryptamine derivatives", Tryptamine Chemistry)

I guess that you want to add Me functions to the N and produce a 3* amine, your question is vague.

3. You should havce posted this in Tryptamine Forum or Newbee Forum maybe in some thread allready discussing this issue instead of starting a new one, and use TFSE.
