Deschloroketamine (also called DXE, DCK, or 2'-Oxo-PCM) is a chemical of the arylcyclohexylamine class which acts as a hallucinogenic dissociative anesthetic.
Deschloroketamine, or 2-Phenyl-2-(methylamino)cyclohexanone, is classed as an arylcyclohexylamine drug. Ayrlcyclohexylamine drugs are named for their structures which include a cyclohexane ring bound to an aromatic ring along with an amine group. Descholoroketamine contains a phenyl ring bonded to a cyclohexane ring substituted with an oxo group (cyclohexanone). An amino methyl chain (-N-CH3) is bound to the adjacent alpha carbon (R2) of the cyclohexanone ring.
Descholoroketamine is a chiral molecule and is often produced as a racemate. Des- is a prefix used in chemistry to denote the absence of a functional group (in this case "chloro") hence deschloroketamine is named for lacking a chlorine substitution on its phenyl ring, which is found in ketamine.
In terms of its subjective effects, this compound feels closer to that of ketamine and MXE than more stimulating, non-immobilizing compounds of the same class such as 3-MeO-PCP, 2'-Oxo-PCE and PCP. It has therefore come to be considered a more suitable ketamine substitute than many other popular arylcyclohexylamines currently available on the research chemicals market. As of 2016, this compound is widely considered to be the best substitute for MXE that is widely available for purchase as it has a similar dosage range and similar subjective effects.
