Acetylenics. 2. Synthesis and pharmacology of certain N,N-diakyl-3-phenylpropyn-2-amines. Some analogues with tryptamine-like behavioral effects in mice.
A number of N,N-dialkyl-3-phenylpropyn-2-amines 7 have been prepared and tested for their biological action. Certain analogues show tryptamine-like behavior effects in mice. The tryptamine-like activity of these compounds appears to be controlled by their lipophilicity. These compounds show only weak inhibition of rat liver monoamine oxidase. Although these compounds exhibit tryptamine-like action, experiments seem to indicate that there is no interaction with the tryptamine receptors.
