What is MDAI?
MDAI or 5,6-Methylenedioxy-2-aminoindane is a research chemical which was first chemically profiled and synthesised at Purdue University by David E. Nichols. Due to its interesting property as a non-neurotoxic selective seretonin releasing agent (SSRA), it has been a very popular research chemical in the UK and Europe. Although only licenced for in vitro (outside living organism) research it is known from other studies that it is not only non-neurotoxic, but would act as an entactogen should it ever be licenced for in vivo research. MDAI became unavailable for a short period within the UK, but is now back, with an even higher purity.

What is MDAI used for?
Due to the chemical structure and relatedness to other SSRA’s, it is reasonable to assume that MDAI would bind to either the seretonin receptor or the seretonin transporter protein. Researchers could use a synthetic membrane infused with these two proteins to determine which one it binds to. The affinity could be determined, or a competitive ligand binding assay could be performed to determine if their is any preference to a particular protein.

Chemistry students may wish to use MDAI as a primary reagent, or MDAI could be used as a reference sample for chemical libraries of NMR, HPLC, FTIR and GC/MS analysis. These results, or even the MDAI sample itself could be used by toxicologists and forensic scientists.

Buy MDAI from are extremely proud to be one of few UK vendors of the new batch of MDAI, with stocks amounts available up to 10g. We have managed to acquire a fresh batch of laboratory grade 99% + pure MDAI. As always with you will receive a tracking number same day as delivery and you will receive a recorded service as standard for UK customers.

All orders of MDAI are strictly not for human consumption and must only be used for legitimate research chemical purposes by customers over the age of 18.
