Oral T

Since many members are interested in analysis of anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS) we post the analytical data of dehydrochlormethyltestosterone ((17β)-4-chloro-17-hydroxy-17-methylandrosta-1,4-dien-3-one) on the most discussion-boards known as Oral Turinabol – Oral T or abbrivated as OT.

You’ll find in this blog-post also the graphics from the different analytical methods of identification (GC, GC/MS, FTIR, HPLC, 1H- and 13C- NMR).

An analysis of a few bottles, each labelled  “Turanabol,” “Chlordehydromethyltestosterone,” and “Golden Triangle Pharmaceuticals” (see Photo 1). Despite identical appearances (same bottle type, labeling, lot number, and number of tablets (100)), some of the bottles contained nondescript orange capsules while other bottles contained nondescript yellow capsules (see Photo 2). Subsequent analyses confirmed that the orange capsules contained dehydrochlormethyltestosterone as the only active ingredient, while the yellow capsules contained primarily dehydrochlormethyltestosterone with minor amounts of stanozolol and methandrostenolone (see structures, below).

Dehydrochlormethyltestosterone is a Schedule III controlled substance in the United States and is also listed in the 2006 Prohibited List/World Anti-Doping Code. It gained notoriety as a result of the East German Olympic doping scandals that were fully exposed after the fall of the Berlin wall (2 ). Data from East German medical personnel involved in the doping indicated that dehydrochlormethyltestosterone produced dramatic increases in speed and strength, but with detrimental side effects such as deepening of the voice, increased acne, and body hair growth. Other, long term side-effects ranged from liver damage to severe gynaecological disorders (2). This steroid is no longer legitimately produced, and appears to be available only as an illicitly-prepared product on the black market.
