βk-2C-B – Discovery, History & Research
βk-2C-B has shown up in the literature for the first time in 2004 with a paper discussing β-Oxygenated analogues of 1-(4-Bromo-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl)-2-aminopropane.
Since the first mention of this type of 2c-B analogue in the paper outlined above, there has been a growth in availability of this research chemical online since 2014. Much of the discussion related to this compound has revolved around its mention within the legality of phenethylamine analogues. There is very little data to describe it’s potential usage in science other than as a part of novel compound catalogues or legality.
Research is scarce and hard to come by with regards to the pharmacological profiling of βk-2C-B’s characterisation.
Below you may find a list of published research with βk-2C-B mentioned in some form.
βk-2C-B – Chemical Structural Data
βk-2C-B is structurally related to 2C-B and BOB. This novel compound has a series of substituted 2,5-dimethoxyphenethylamines at the 4 position on the aromatic ring. 2-CB is a known designer drug, with βk-2C-B essentially being a β-Ketone analogue.
βk-2C-B – Structure-Activity & Chemical Similarity Predictions
Based on the known activity of the parent compound 2-CB, βk-2C-B is thought to have a similar affinity for the serotonin receptor subgroup, but with a potentially longer efficacy.
The 5-HT2c subgroup of serotonin receptor seems to have the most affinity after administration of 2-CB in vitro.
βk-2C-B is thought of as having an “unpredictable efficacy” as a psychedelic and empathogenic compound, with anecdotal suggestions and predictions pointing to a roughly double duration of action, when compared to 2-CB alone.

βk-2C-B – Online Anecdotal Reports
It seems that there is a common search for information regarding βk-2C-B’s dosage and the combination between βk-2C-B and alcohol. However, this is from anecdotal and subjective forum discussions, where the talk is very much illegal in most countries for βk-2C-B.
Unlike some other newer research chemicals, βk-2C-B’s Wiki page exists with further online discussions on reddit and other popular research chemical forums.
