2,3-Dichlorophenylpiperazine (2,3-DCPP or DCPP) is a chemical compound. It is both a precursor in the synthesis of aripiprazole and one of its metabolites. It is unclear whether 2,3-DCPP is pharmacologically active similar to its close analogue 3-chlorophenylpiperazine (mCPP).
2,3-DCPP has been made illegal in Japan and Hungary after having been identified in seized designer drug samples.
As with the related compound mCPP, 2,3-DCPP is an essential precursor to several pharmaceutical drugs which are widely used in medicine, and is also formed as a metabolite of these drugs in patients, although generally only in insignificant amounts.
