Isopropylamphetamine is a psychostimulant of the substituted amphetamine class.[1] It is an isomer of propylamphetamine and was discovered by a team at Astra Laekemedel AB.[2] The isopropyl moiety reduces the stimulant activity of the compound but greatly increases the duration of action. For this reason, the compound is not used recreationally.[citation needed]
