Brief summary - N,O-Dimethyl-4-(2-naphthyl)piperidine-3-carboxylate
N,O-Dimethyl-4Î²-(2-naphthyl)piperidine-3Î²-carboxylate (DMNPC) is a piperidine based stimulant drug which is synthesised from arecoline. It is similar to nocaine in chemical structure, and has two and a half times more activity than cocaine as a dopamine reuptake inhibitor. However it is also a potent serotonin reuptake inhibitor, with similar affinity to fluoxetine.It is a structural isomer of another potent dopamine reuptake inhibitor, HDMP-28. Clearly it is not just the SS enantiomer of the title compound that is an active MAT inhibitor.
