This article will present the factual material that exists in the literature representing the results of laboratory studies and scientific experimentation with methylenedioxymethamphetamine or MDMA, the common name applied to an organic compound, a secondary amine. As a free base it is a white, musty smelling oil with a searing taste, insoluble in water but soluble in most organic solvents. It forms salts with several acids, and these are white solids or oils that are readily water soluble and bitter to the taste. It has an empirical formula C11H15NO2, and its structural formula is given in Figure 1.
