5-Iodo-2-aminoindan (5-IAI) is a psychoactive drug and research chemical developed in the 1990s by a team led by David E. Nichols at Purdue University.[1] It acts as a selective serotonin releasing agent (SSRA). Unlike similar compounds like MDAI, 5-IAI does cause some neurotoxicity, but is substantially less toxic than the corresponding amphetamine p-iodoamphetamine (PIA).[2] 5-IAI was developed to aid in the investigation of the serotonergic neurotoxicity caused by the para-halogenated amphetamines such as p-chloroamphetamine (PCA).
