Abstract: A new stimulant was prepared as an analog of amphetamine and of 2-aminotetralin. The optical isomers of this amine were obtained by chemical resolution, and the absolute configuration was determined to be (R)-(+) and (S)-(-). (±)-1,2-Dihydro-2-naphthalenamine is approximately one-fourth as potent as (+)-amphetamine as a stimulant in mice. (S)-(-)-1,2-Dihydro-2-naphthalenamine is solely responsible for the stimulant effects of the racemate.
