2,5-Dimethoxy-4-nitroamphetamine (DON) is a recreational drug and amphetamine. It is a analog of DOM and DOB. It is also closely related to 2C-N.
DON is in a class of compounds commonly known as alpha-methyl phenethylamines, or amphetamines and the full chemical name is 1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-nitrophenyl)propan-2-amine. It has a stereocenter.
In his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known And Loved), Alexander Shulgin lists a dosage of DON as being 3-4.5 mg orally with amphetamine-like stimulation lasting 8–15 hours.
The toxicity of DON is not known.
DON is unscheduled in the United States, but because of its close similarity in structure and effects to DOM and DOB, possession and sale of DON may be subject to prosecution under the Federal Analog Act. DON is listed as a Class A drug in the Drugs controlled by the UK Misuse of Drugs Act after the table of contents of Pihkal and Tihkal were added to the schedules.
