MAB-CHMINACA is also known as ADB-CHMINACA. The chemical name is
N-(1-Amino-3,3-Dimethyl-1-oxoButan-2-yl)-1-(CycloHexylMethyl)-1H-INdAzole-3-CarboxAmide. The alphabet soup naming convention is shown by red-colored bold uppercase font.
I've covered this compound previously here and here.
As you can see from the chemical structures detailed above, ADB-CHMINACA is closely related to many other synthetic cannabinoids, namely AB-CHMINACA, which was placed into Schedule I about 8 months ago. The difference between the two compounds is a tert-butyl moiety vs. an isopropyl moiety.
When this compound is officially scheduled (probably around a month from now, so around October 15th), it will be the 25th synthetic cannabinoid explicitly scheduled by the US Federal Government in approximately 4.5 years (since 3/2011).
The current list of Federally controlled synthetic cannabinoids is (in alphabetical order):
Well, as history has shown, a new synthetic cannabinoid will now reign supreme and we'll still continue to see hospitalizations and potential fatalities. And rest assured, it'll be a substance with unknown pharmacology and toxicology.
Next research chemical up!
My vote is for 5F-AMB.
