HOT-2, or 2,5-dimethoxy-4-(β-ethylthio)-N-hydroxyphenethylamine is a psychedelic phenethylamine of the 2C family. It was presumably first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin and reported in his book PiHKAL (Phenethylamines i Have Known And Loved).
HOT-2's full chemical name is 2-[4-(2-ethylthio)-2,5-dimethoxyphenyl–N–hydroxyethanamine. It has structural properties similar to 2C-T-2 and to other drugs in the HOT- series, with the most closely related compounds being HOT-7 and HOT-17.
The dosage range of HOT-2 is typically 10-18 mg and its duration is approximately 6–10 hours according to Shulgin. HOT-2 produces visuals and moving, flowing lights. It also causes euphoria and increases blood pressure.
