Description

LP18505-5   Cocaethylene
Cocaethylene is the ethyl ester of benzoylecgonine. It is chemically related to cocaine, which is the corresponding methyl ester. Cocaethylene is formed in the body when cocaine and alcohol have been taken simultaneously: the transesterification is catalysed by carboxylesterases in the liver. Cocaethylene has similar euphoric properties to cocaine, but is longer lasting in the body. Some studies suggest that it is more toxic than cocaine itself, particularly to the heart.
