United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) maintains lists regarding the classification of illicit drugs (see DEA Schedules). It also maintains List I of chemicals and List II of chemicals, which contain chemicals that are used to manufacture the controlled substances/illicit drugs. The lists are designated within The Controlled Substances Act, 21 U.S.C. § 802, Definition 34 (list I) and 35 (list II).
Although the list is designated by the
U.S. Attorney General, the list is considered a DEA list because the DEA publishes and enforces the list.
Suppliers of these products are subject to regulation and control measures.
List I chemicals [edit ]
These chemicals are designated as those that are used in the manufacture of the controlled substances and are important to the manufacture of the substances.
Anthranilic acid, its esters, and its salts Benzaldehyde Benzyl cyanide gamma-Butyrolactone Ephedrine its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers Ergocristine and its salts Ergonovine and its salts Ergotamine and its salts Ethylamine and its salts Hydroiodic acid Hypophosphorous acid and its salts (including ammonium hypophosphite, calcium hypophosphite, iron hypophosphite, potassium hypophosphite, manganese hypophosphite, magnesium hypophosphite and sodium hypophosphite) [1 ] [2 ] Iodine, including elemental iodine crystals and chemical mixtures containing greater than 2.2% concentration of iodine ( e.g., strong iodine tincture and Lugol's iodine) [3 ] Isosafrole Methylamine and its salts , its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers N-Methylephedrine , its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers N-Methylpseudoephedrine N-Acetylanthranilic acid, its esters, and its salts Nitroethane Norpseudoephedrine, its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers Phenylacetic acid, its esters, and its salts Phenylpropanolamine, its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers Phosphorus (white ("yellow") or red allotropes) [1 ] [2 ] Piperidine and its salts Piperonal N-phenethyl-4-piperidone Propionic anhydride 3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl-2-propanone Pseudoephedrine, its salts, optical isomers, and salts of optical isomers Safrole List II chemicals [edit ]
These chemicals are designated as those that are used in the manufacture of the controlled substances.
Special Surveillance List [edit ] Chemicals [6 ]
