2C-T-16 is a lesser-known psychedelic drug. It was originally named by Alexander Shulgin as described in his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved), however while Shulgin began synthesis of this compound he only got as far as the nitrostyrene intermediate, and did not complete the final synthetic step.[1] Synthesis of 2C-T-16 was finally achieved by Daniel Trachsel some years later,[2] and it was subsequently reported as showing similar psychedelic activity to related compounds, with a dose range of 10-25mg and a duration of 4-6 hours,[3] making it around the same potency as the better-known saturated analogue 2C-T-7, but with a significantly shorter duration of action. Binding studies in vitro showed 2C-T-16 to have a binding affinity of 44nM at 5-HT2A and 15nM at 5-HT2C.[4] Some related compounds have been shown to be MAOIs,[5] and this may also be the case for 2C-T-16 in addition to its 5-HT2 agonist effects.
