Propylphenidate (also known as PPH) is a piperidine based stimulant drug, closely related to methylphenidate, but with the methyl ester replaced by an propyl ester. It was banned in the UK as a Temporary Class Drug from April 2015 following its unapproved sale as a designer drug.[1] Propylphenidate can be synthesised from methylphenidate.[2]

Legal staus[edit]

Propylphenidate is illegal in Sweden as of 26. January 2016.[3]
