Bufotenine N-oxide is a tryptamine found naturally in several plants. It's the N-Oxide form of the hallucinogen bufotenine. It can be converted to bufotenine using zinc dust in aqueous acetic acid. Bufotenine can be oxidized to bufotenine N-oxide by the action of peroxide in ethanol. Bufotenine can also form bufotenine N-oxide by prolonged exposure to air.
The psyhoactivity of bufotenine N-oxide in humans has not been studied.
