Ketamine (Ketalar) also known as Ket, K, Special K, Kitty, Horse/Dog/Vet Tranquilizer or Ketanest is a synthetic dissociative substance of the arylcyclohexylamine chemical class that produces dissociative, anesthetic, and hallucinogenic effects when administered. It is widely used in human and veterinary medicine, primarily for the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia for surgical procedures.
Other medical applications of ketamine include sedation and anesthesia in intensive care situations, particularly in emergency medicine, and in the treatment of bronchospasm (i.e. a sudden constriction of the muscles in the walls of the lungs bronchioles).
Ketamine was originally developed as a medicine in 1965 as a derivative and successor to PCP, the modern world’s first synthetic general anesthetic agent, which was synthesized in 1926. While possessing recreational properties that led to its rise in popularity in the 1970s, it remains a core medicine in the World Health Organization’s “Essential Drugs List”, a list of the safest and most effective drugs needed in a modern health system.
Like other dissociative substances of its class such, as methoxetamine and phencyclidine (PCP), it is primarily sought by recreational users for its ability to induce a hallucinogenic “out of body” state referred to as “dissociative anesthesia” (although the extent to which this occurs is highly dose-dependent).
In addition to its widespread use as a licit medicine, ketamine is also is commonly used today for recreational purposes and more rarely and controversially, as an entheogenic substance.
Ketamine, or (RS)-2-(2-Chlorophenyl)-2-(methylamino)cyclohexanone, is a member of the arylcyclohexylamine chemical class. Arylcyclohexylamines are named for their structures which include a cyclohexane ring bound to an aromatic ring along with an amine group. Ketamine is comprised of a phenyl ring with a chlorine substituent at R2 bonded to a cyclohexane ring substituted with an -Oxo group (cyclohexanone). An amino methyl chain (-N-CH3) is bound to the same location (R1) of the cyclohexanone ring.
Ketamine is a chiral molecule and is typically produced as a racemate, although enantiopure versions such as esketamine (S-ketamine) and arketamine (R-ketamine) are sometimes used in both licit and illicit contexts.
