Etonitazene is a highly potent narcotic analgesic (1000-1500x morphine). It's the one of several benzimidazole opioids, and is structurally related to clonitazene (where the p-ethoxybenzyl group is replaced by a p-chlorobenzyl group. However, it has only 3x the potency of morphine.). In pharmacology and toxicology, a route of administration is the path by which a drug, fluid, poison or other substance is brought into contact with the body. ... Benzimidazole is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound. ... An opioid is a chemical substance that has a morphine-like action in the body. ... Morphine (INN) (IPA: ) is a highly potent opiate analgesic drug and is the principal active agent in opium and the prototypical opiate. ...


It has a strong dependency potential similar to that of morphine and therefore is not used in humans. It is, however, useful in addiction studies on animals.


It is the most potent benzimidazole opioid currently known.[1] Other analogues of considerable potency are as follows:

  • Methyl (10x morphine)
  • Ethyl (30x morphine)
  • Propyl (50x morphine)
  • Methoxy (100x morphine)
  • Isopropoxy (500x morphine)
  • Butoxy (200x morphine)
  • Methylthio (50x morphine)
  • Ethylthio (30x morphine)

These groups replace the p-ethoxy group - there are other possible modifications but these are the most significant.


The drug has proved very important in mapping out the opiate receptor and some experimental compounds in which phenolic groupings have been replaced with nitro groupings have proved more active than the parent compound.[citation needed]


To date, only 2 instance of illicit production has been recorded. A chemist at Morton Thiokol called Michael Hovey produced the compound and placed it in a nasel inhaller. Such was the level of his addiction, insufficient amounts of methadone were given and he commited suicide before the case went to court. The second instance took place in Russia between 2 chemistry graduates. Thusfar, the case has not been detailed.
