It is usually used as the intermediate and raw material in the fine chemistry industry. Specifically, this chemical can act as the intermediate in the synthesis of 4-methyl methcathinone HCl, which is used as the sample for development and validation of a presumptive colour spot test method for the detection of piperazine analogues in seized illicit materials.1 Moreover, this compound may function as an effective ingredient to prepare the therapeutically useful 1-phenyl-2-piperidinoalkanol derivatives.2 In addition, this substance has been demonstrated to be involved in the preparation of a pharmaceutical composition comprising a pyrrole derivative, which shows a desirable activity for the treatment pollakiuria or urinary incontinence.3
