4-Acetoxy-DET (4-Acetoxy-N,N-diethyltryptamine), also known as ethacetin, ethylacybin or 4-AcO-DET is a psychedelic tryptamine. It was first synthesized in 1958 by Albert Hofmann in the Sandoz lab.
4-Acetoxy-DET is orally active, and dosages of 10–25 mg are common. Effects last 4–6 hours. The free base is also active when smoked in a dose range of 5–20 mg. Smoking 4-acetoxy-DET greatly speeds up the onset; peak effects are experienced within 10 minutes, and are usually over within 1 hour.[specify]
