3-MeO-PCE is synthetic dissociative analogue of the arylcyclohexylamine family. 3-MeO-PCE is a derivative of phencyclidine (PCP) and is chemically related to substances like methoxetamine and 3-MeO-PCP. 3-MeO-PCE, or N-Ethyl-1-(3-methoxyphenyl)cyclohexan-1-amine, is classed as an arylcyclohexylamine drug. 3-MeO-PCE contains a phenyl ring with a methoxy (CH3-O-) substituent at R3 bonded to a cyclohexane ring bound to the same carbon (R1) of the cyclohexanone ring is an amino ethyl chain -NCH2CH3. 3-MeO-PCE, like MXE, contains an amino ethyl chain rather than the amino methyl chain found in DCK and ketamine. 3-MeO-PCE is analogous to MXE, but lacks an R2 substituted ketone.
