The article lists the above product (13) as one of three compounds which have analgesic properties rather than being like PCP (dissociative). I loathe seeing "cyclohexanone cyanohydrin", because I probably need fucking NaCN to make it, and just buying that cyano compound might arouse the suspicion of those filthy scum-bags at the DEA. Am I over-reacting? What if I just refluxed the 4-phenylpiperidine/cyclohexanone until it's dry, then add it to phenyl-lithium? Or, maybe make the tosylate salt and add it to PhMgBr?
Anyway, I just thought that some of you might be interested.. I'm off to look for a synth of 4-phenylpiperidine.. Hmmmm, maybe phenylbutylamine could be used the create a compound that retains activity? Peace!
