Phenylacetone, also called Benzyl Methyl Ketone (BMK) is an organic compound with the chemical formula C₆H₅CH₂COCH₃.
What is Benzyl Methyl Ketone (BMK)?
Benzyl Methyl Ketone (BMK), also called Phenylacetone is an organic compound with the chemical formula C₆H₅CH₂COCH₃. This substance – Phenylacetone, also called BMK is an organic compound with the chemical formula C₆H₅CH₂COCH₃. Benzyl Methyl Ketone (BMK) is used or precursor in the manufacture of methamphetamine and amphetamine, where it is commonly known as P2P. The cas number is CAS NO.:103-79-7.
Major Uses of Benzyl Methyl Ketone (BMK)
BMK, also known as 1-Phenyl-2-propanone (P-2-P), , is a colorless or slightly yellowish liquid.
It presents a density similar to that of water as well as a pleasant scent. Even if there are few legitimate uses of BMK such as in the production of the pharmaceutical drug propyl-hexedrine, most frequently BMK is used as an illicit compound.
Actually, BMK is identified by classical methods such as gas chromatography, NMR or HPLC. These methods are costly, time-consuming and require the presence of trained operators. It appears obvious that there is an urgent need to develop a new easy and fast method that allows us to detect the presence of traces of BMK.
In this work, a new chemically synthesized BMK derivative covalently attached to an immunological carrier was used for producing antibodies against theBenzyl methyl ketone (BMK) molecules. A fluorescence polarization-based bioassay was developed by using the produced anti-BMK antibodies and the BMK derivative.
The assay exhibits interesting analytical performances with a limit of detection of less than 100 nM and an almost linear response up to 600 nM. Interestingly, the proposed assay could be performed using a customizable portable instrumentation and could be used by non-instructed personnel at custom borders and checkpoints or for quick spot-checks.
Materials and methods of BMK
One of the most important developments in the story of BMK was the discovery that it can be produced from alpha-phenylacetoacetonitrile (APAAN), an innovation that was probably driven by erratic availability of other precursors.
