Methoxphenidine is classified as an NMDA receptor antagonist. Members of this class induce a state known as "dissociative anesthesia" and are used in both medical (e.g. surgical anesthesia) and recreational settings. These include arylcyclohexylamines like ketamine and phencyclidine (PCP), as well as dextromethorphan (DXM). Methoxphenidine, or 2-MeO-Diphenidine is a molecule of the diarylethylamine class. It contains a substituted phenethylamine skeleton with an additional phenyl ring bound to Rα. The terminal amino group of the phenethylamine chain is incorporated into a piperidine ring. Hence, methoxphenidine belongs to the piperidine dissociative class of compounds. Methoxphenidine is structurally analogous to Diphenidine, containing an additional 2-methoxy CH3O- substitution.
