What is 6-APB?

6-(2-aminopropyl)benzofuran or 6-APB is research chemical in the Phenythylamine class of compounds with a chemical structure very similar to that of Amphetamine. The compound is believed to possess stimulant and entactogen properties, based on its chemical similarity to other compounds in its class, such as MDA. It is likely to act as a releasing agent and re-uptake inhibitor of Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Seretonin.

What is 6-APB used for?

6-APB is used to analyse the binding profile of the receptors it binds to in vitro (outside of a living organism). This means that researchers can determine the affinity, efficacy and duration of action that 6-APB has upon Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Seretonin receptors.

Our 6-APB pellets are produced to make it easier for researchers to have an accurately weighed pellet ready for use, without the need to deal with the open powder and weighing scales. We also pellet this product due to the nature of the chemical and the fact it may be dangerous to handle and could cause serious harm if accidentally spilt and inhaled.

6-APB could be used by chemists for primary reagent testing, and by toxicologists and forensic scientists as a reference sample. 6-APB may be used as a reference sample by analysing it and adding it to the appropriate NMR, HPLC, FTIR or GC/MS library.

6-APB – Discovery, History & Research


6-APB was first researched in 1993 by a team lead by David E Nichols at Purdue University, 6-APB then later published in a patent filed in early 1999 and eventually published in August 2000, by Eli Lilly and Company under Patent number 60117385 as part of a research group interested in 5-HT2C agonists.


As one of the first heavily marketed research chemicals, 6-APB was given the informal name “Benzofury” and was first looked at when scientists were studying potentially non-neurotoxic analogues of MDMA. After some pharmacological studies were conducted on its Phamacodynamics and receptor binding affinities most of the other other published research surrounded its subsequent banning around the world, or its toxicology reports. 6-APB was later scheduled in most major western countries from as early as 2009 onwards.


Research into 6-APB began with David E Nichols back in 1993, with some description of its potential as an MDMA analogue with non-neurotoxic attributes. Other than this work, the majority of publications are to do with Toxicology and legal status as a “legal high” or research chemical.

6-APB – Chemical Structural Data

6-APB is a synthetic benzofuran molecule with a phenethylamine core as would be expected of most stimulants in it’s family. 6-APB, however, differs in that it has no methyl substitution RN (much like its chemical cousin MDA) however, it has an oxygen-substituted benzofuran ring with a fusion of both R3 and R4 on the phenyl ring. 6-APB is closely related to other research chemical compounds such as -5-APB, 6-MAPB and 5-MAPB.

6-APB – Structure-Activity & Chemical Similarity Predictions

We are lucky to have some actual published data on the pharmacology of 6-APB, showing that it acts as a releasing agent and re-uptake inhibitor and three of the main recreational based protein transporters, serotonin, dopamine and noradrenaline. The following data is available: Kivalues of 117, 150 and 2698 nM for NET, DAT and SERT respectively as well as being a potent agonist for the 5-HT2B receptor (Ki 3.7 nM).

This would give 6-APB the ability to act as a potent stimulant, entactogen and and empathogenic psychoactive.
