4-AcO-DET (4-Acetoxy-N,N-diethyltryptamine, ethacetin) is an obscure synthetic psychedelic tryptamine. There is very little information on the human pharmacology or toxicity of 4-AcO-DET, although analytical methods have been developed for its detection
Like with most psychedelic tryptamines, 4-AcO-DET is thought to act principally as a 5-HT2A partial agonist. The psychedelic effects are believed to come from 4-AcO-DET’s binding efficacy at the 5-HT2A receptors.
4-AcO-DET is sold for research purposes only.
