(–)-2β-Carbomethoxy-3β-(4-bromophenyl)tropane (RTI-51, bromopane) is a semi-synthetic alkaloid in the phenyltropane group of psychostimulant compounds. First publicized in the 1990s, it has not been used enough to have gained a fully established profile. RTI-51 can be expected to have properties lying somewhere in between RTI-31 and RTI-55. Importantly it has a ratio of monoamine reuptake inhibition of D > S > N (1.8:10.6:37.4nM respectively) which is an unusual balance of effects not produced by other commonly used compounds (although RTI-121 is similar, but more DAT selective).[1] It has been used in its 76Br radiolabelled form to map the distribution of dopamine transporters in the brain.[2]

Iodine 53 127 2.7

Modern research seems to confirm the above hypothesis.[3] However, earlier work produced more scattered results.[4] Based upon what is obvious from the table, RTI-31, RTI-51, and RTI-55 are all similarly potent TRIs.[5][6]
