RTI-111

RTI-111

Dichloropane ((-)-2β-Carbomethoxy-3β-(3,4-dichlorophenyl)tropane, RTI-111, O-401) is a powerful SNDRI with IC50 (nM) values of 0.79, 3.13, and 18 at the DAT, SERT, and NET.[1]

Methylecgonidine as the direct precursor to this compound.[2]

In contrast to the closely related RTI-112, dichloropane is a potent stimulant drug which produces similar effects to cocaine as well as being structurally similar to cocaine. In animal studies although, dichloropane had a slower onset and longer duration of action.[3][4]
