Methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA), also known as ecstasy, is a synthetic drug that has both, a psychedelic and stimulant effects. It is predominantly a “club drug” and is commonly used at rave parties. Primesep 200, a reverse phase column, contains embedded acidic ionizable groups and can retain MDMA. The method is UV compatible and can be used as a general approach for analyzing similar compounds.
