The product belongs to a substituted cathinone class, where cathinones are the sub-class of amphetamines. 3-mmc is structurally analogous to mephedrone. It possesses the same core amphetamine structure of a phenyl. It differs from other cathinones by the ketone attachment on the beta carbon of the amphetamine framework. 3-MMC undergoes two methyl substitutions, such as at R3 position of the phenyl ring and the other at the nitrogen group RN on the cathinone skeleton.
