Psychedelic Research Chemicals or RC Chems are new synthetic substances which are structurally similar to the original drug, while being functional analogs. Data on their effects limited due as they’re fairly new and do not have a lot of human consumption history.

Psychedelics are substances (natural or laboratory made) which cause profound changes in a one’s perceptions of reality. While under the influence of hallucinogens, users might hallcuniate visually and auditorily.

Disclaimer: Psychedelic drugs offer some of the most powerful and intense psychological experiences. Additionally these substances are illegal in many places. We understand that even though these substances are illegal, their use occurs frequently. We do not condone breaking of the law. By providing accurate information about these substances, we encourage the user to make responsible decisions and practice harm reduction.

5-methoxy-di isopropyl tryptamine, also known as ‘foxy’, a psychedelic tryptamine related to DMT, which distorts visual and audio perception. Reported to have a heavy body load at high doses, it behaves similarly to other drugs of its class.


It is related in structure to DiPT and 5-MeO-MiPT. The first human trials of 5-MeO-DiPT were undertaken by Alexander Shulgin in 1975. who would co-author and publish a paper detailing its synthesis and human psychopharmacology in 1981.

A summary of the synthesis and reports of human use is included in Shulgin’s 1997 book TiHKAL (“Tryptamines I Have Known And Loved”). Anecdotal reports characterize the effects of this compound as highly stimulating and mildly entactogenic, lacking in typical psychedelic visual distortions. Many users report strong physical and tactile effects that serve to enhance libido and sexual pleasure.

Many users note an unpleasant body load accompanies higher dosages. Some users also report sound distortion, which is also noted with the related compound, DiPT. Very little is known about the pharmacological properties, metabolism and toxicity of 5-MeO-DiPT.

It is relatively obscure and has a limited history of human use. It has been sold online as a research chemical. It is highly advised to use harm reduction practices if using this substance.




Tryptamines share a core structure comprised of a bicylic indole heterocycle attached at R3 to an amino group via an ethyl side chain.

5-MeO-DiPT is substituted at R5 of its indole heterocycle with a methoxy (MeO) functional group CH3O−; it also contains two isopropyl chains bound to the terminal amine RN of its tryptamine backbone (DiPT). 5-MeO-DiPT is the N-substituted diisopropyl homolog of 5-MeO-MiPT.

Pharmacological Effects

5-MeO-DiPT’s psychedelic effects are believed to come from its efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptor as a partial agonist, although additional mechanisms of action such as MAOIs may also be involved. However, the role of these interactions and how they result in the psychedelic experience continues to remain elusive.

Physical Effects

Sensory Effects

  • Synaesthesia - In its fullest manifestation, this is a very rare and non-reproducible effect. Increasing the dosage can increase the likelihood of this occurring, but seems to only be a prominent part of the experience among those who are already predisposed to synaesthetic states.
