    17b-Methoxytrienosterone Analysis (FTIR)


    I recently purchased and tested a popular brand of "17b-Methoxytrienosterone" because I have received many inquiries as to what it might actually be. I took the contents of 10 randomly selected caps from the bottle and did a rapid extraction with ~10ml of cold methanol. I then filtered the solvent through a 0.2mic PTFE Whatman syringe filter and evaporated the extract over extremely low heat in the absence of light. The yield was a distinctly yellow, apparently pure crystalline solid. By USP 197<K> analysis method, I prepared a KBr pellet with some of the material and performed an infrared scan (reference attachment.)

    It would appear that this compound is indeed a ketone but also appears to possess at least 1 hydroxyl function (with some possible cellulose contamination from the many shoulders in that region.) The presence of a methoxy function is inconclusive. The alkene stretch is significant, maybe not enough so to be a triene, nevertheless it could be. It is certainly a typical steroidal hydrocarbon but without further analysis, I can not say for certain. I would need to test additional brands, do some UV quantitative analysis and test the cousin product called 'TRN' also to get a better understanding of what this truly is. A GC/MS analysis could also provide some additional insights, so sorry guys, this is all I can do for now. All I can say is that it's not what I would expect 17b-Methoxytrienosterone to look like, but I can't rule it out either. Therefore, I have no solid conclusion as to it's identity at this point.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to DR.D again.

    Looking for a explanation Dr. D,

    Is a triene an aromatic?
    If it is true around 1900 it seems there is aromatic overtones.
    And couldn't the stretch at 2856 be a OCH3?
    Although the two stretches make it the CH3 and CH2?
    If the CH2 is anti that just describe the fact that the methyl was added anti?

    Sorry about all the questions my orgo is rusty. lol

    Tri-ene does not imply aromaticity.

    Ok I see what you are saying, does this have a triene, similar to tren? then with a methoxy group for oral availablility?

    Thanks! I was trying hard to write as legibly as possible so you guys could actually read it. I almost used the 'annotate' function just because my writing is usually so bad, lol. It usually looks like the chicken scratch a recent stoke victim might scribble out or something.

    "Is a triene an aromatic?"

    - Only if it's in the same ring system.

    "If it is true around 1900 it seems there is aromatic overtones."

    - Could be, but I have never really seen anything like this before in the 2700-1900 cm-1 range before, it's just bizarre. The peak at 780 could be some ring puckering though if it is indeed aromatic.

    "And couldn't the stretch at 2856 be a OCH3?"

    - What's more intriguing is the multiple shoulders or tiny inflections in the OH region. I ran a 7 point smoothing filter on the scan to accentuate the major peaks for you guys, but in the raw data scan these tiny peaks (I speculated may be traces of residual cellulose) do somewhat resemble the patterns I've seen in steroidal 3-methyl ethers, so who knows.

    "Although the two stretches make it the CH3 and CH2?"
    - It appears so, yes. The whole alkane region there is extremely under-pronounced though, weird.

    "If the CH2 is anti that just describe the fact that the methyl was added anti?"

    - Symmetry will reduce intensity so I was mainly just going on gut instinct based on my experience with these things. I just need molecular weights and fragment patters from an MS before I could verify these things to establish a good guess. Without a standard, it's tough to properly characterize at first, at least in this case it seems.

    Not yet, but VOODOO was kind enough to say he'd send me a whole box of Trenadol to test, what a swell guy!

    OK, actually he said screw you, you have to buy your own bottle. J/K

    I need to get a variety of other brands, just been swamped again lately with certain 'haters' trying to distract me. You guys should protect me better if you want faster testing.

    LOL! Way to volunteer me there!

    I suggest testing trenadrol and mtrn as well, it would be good to see the two in a side by side comparison.

    If you're talking about 17b-Methoxytrienosterone, only one brand was actually released. Methoxy-TST by BioScience Technologies.

    I think trenadrol is the same thing or at least that is the claims I've heard.

    You guys are confusing "17b-methoxy-triensterone" and "17b-methoxy-trienbolone".

    References to both Methoxy TST and Mega/Methoxy-TRN have been made.

    Dr D. wants to test methoxy tren as well. This is why I refered to trenadrol and mtrn.

    Sorry to confuse anyone. Methoxy TST is a totally different product, though apparently its popular to stack methoxy test and methoxy tren though I never have.

    Ok, I saw some days ago this page:

    http://www.ergogenics.org/blog4.html

    It says after some tests the compound in M-TRN and M-TST is the same...

    I believe I saw some review or reference about this issue in bodybuilding.com board (in a thread about ALRI JW's questioned compound if I remember well...) but not conclusion resulted (as quite often happens... )

    Any news about this issue???

    I believe I saw some review or reference about this issue in bodybuilding.com board (in a thread about ALRI JW's questioned compound if I remember well...) but not conclusion resulted (as quite often happens... )

    Any news about this issue???
    Going by personal use, I don't think these 2 are the same judging by their characteristics/results. Also, it wouldn't make much sense for their creator to suggest stacking the 2 Lot of bad info out there on that the Internet...

    I think the confusion is that they are testing for certain metabolites of steroids. The metabolites can be identical or very similar from DIFFERENT steroids. So, they get a metabolite that is most commonly associated with DBOL and they assume the steroid in question is DBOL. It's a backward way of measuring what the steroid is if you don't have reference parameters.

    I've stayed away from TRN for the reason that no one knows what the heck is in it, if there is even anything in there that could be active at all (I've had doubts due to some of the chemistry talk about it on another forum last year).

    Oh yeah, sorry. TRN is enigmatic too, and I'd like to know what that actually is as well.
